This book is intended for people who already know serverless technologies but who require a more detailed understanding.
This book begins with a look at various tools that you can use to develop, test, and deploy solutions based on Azure Functions. You will learn how you can extend the Azure Functions runtime to support your custom triggers and bindings. You will also learn what programming languages Azure Functions supports, and how you can use the language extensibility to create support for your favorite language. With a strong foundation in Azure Functions 2.0, you will learn how to deploy and configure an Azure function and understand how you can test (using the dependency injection pattern inside your Azure Functions) and monitor a complete solution. You will also see how API Management and Event Grid can be used in a serverless manner. Toward the end of the book, you will get to grips with technical and cost-related best practices. The book will also show you how to use, and when to avoid, serverless in solutions that are under our control or that should incorporate parts from different sources.
By the end of the book, you will be working seamlessly with Azure Functions.
