Overview of this book

Application development has evolved from traditional monolithic app development to using serverless options and microservices. This book is designed to guide you through using Microsoft's Azure Functions to process data, integrate systems, and build simple APIs and microservices. You will discover how to apply serverless computing to speed up deployment and reduce downtime. You'll also explore Azure Functions, including its core functionalities and essential tools, along with understanding how to debug and even customize Azure Functions. In addition to this, the book will take you through how you can effectively implement DevOps and automation in your working environment. Toward the concluding chapters, you'll cover some quick tips, troubleshooting techniques, and real-world serverless use cases that will help you make the most of serverless computing.

  1. Which of the following are advantages of the unit test?
    • Your code is more beautiful.
    • The bugs found during the unit test are less expensive.
    • It increases your confidence when changing or maintaining code.
    • You can speed up development by parallelizing the tests.
  2. How can you register your service instances to leverage the dependency injection pattern in your function?
    • You must implement the IServiceCollection interface to manage your services.
    • You can create a class that implements the IWebJobsStartup interface and set it as the WebJobsStartup class.
    • You can define a class derived from the FunctionsStartup class and set it as a startup class using the FunctionsStartupAttribute attribute.
    • You cannot register your own services; you must create them at runtime using reflection.
  3. What is the value of the severity of inserting only warning-, error-, and critical-type...
