Technical requirements

If you want to start to develop solutions with Azure Functions, you have to know one of the languages Azure Functions supports (at this moment in time, C#, JavaScript, Java, and Python). If you do, you'll easily be able to follow this book.

The Microsoft entry point for the Azure Functions documentation is located at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/functions/. Starting from there, you can find technical documentation, whitepapers, and samples, and you can navigate to the GitHub repositories for the different tools you'll encounter in this book.
