Azure Functions allows businesses and individual developers to run workloads of varying intensity in the cloud without the need to manage servers. These serverless applications can automatically scale based on demand, ensuring that resources are always available when needed. Azure Functions is also very cost-effective since it bills you only for the functions you use.
In this course, you’ll focus on the .NET implementations of Azure Functions. You’ll start by learning how to build, configure, and deploy these functions. Next, you’ll explore running Azure Functions in a development environment and examine the different types of functions and the various ways to trigger them. Finally, you’ll learn how to orchestrate, scale, and secure Azure Functions.
By the end of this course, you will have gained a comprehensive understanding of the full development cycle of .NET-based Azure functions. You will be equipped to build, deploy, and manage Azure functions in a .NET environment.
- The ability to build Azure functions
- Hands-on experience with Azure Functions triggers
- Ability to apply orchestration to distributed Azure functions
- n understanding of the differences between Azure function types and when to use them
- Familiarity with Azure Durable Functions
