Azure Functions and precompiled assemblies

In all our Azure Functions that we have created so far, we have written our code in a method named Run in the run.csx. However, there might be some scenarios where you would like to have your own classes and functions run as a start up method hosted on the Azure Functions. In this recipe, you will learn how to integrate your custom class and methods as start ups.

Getting ready...

By default, all the Function apps that you create in VS 2017 are precompiled function. This recipe is developed using VS 2015. Please make sure you install Visual Studio 2015 if you don't have one installed already.
