Azure Functions Development Guide

Posted by

One of the big selling points of serverless is that it’s easy to get started with. That’s definitely true, but as with most technologies, there are some key concepts that need to be understood before you can be truly efficient.

I’ve written a short guide to fill the gap between getting started and being ready to start writing your first Azure Functions. After reading through the guide, you’ll have a firm understanding of how the project goes from source code on your computer to accepting requests from web and mobile clients in the cloud. The guide won’t provide you with every little detail, but instead point you in the right direction to find answers when you need them.

I wanted the guide to be as visual as possible, so instead of a long blog post, I’ve structured it into PDF format so that it’s easy to view, absorb, and get to work. The first page is an overview of the Azure Functions development model, and the subsequent pages fill in the gaps with additional information. For those occasions when you need more detail, I’ve added links to other blog posts here and elsewhere on the web.

The full guide is available as a PDF. Below, you’ll also find PNG versions of the guide, if that’s what you prefer.

If you want more details with regards to anything mentioned in the guide, make sure to check out my entire blog series on Azure Functions.
