Look inside

Azure Functions is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get your code running in Azure while maintaining a cost-effective and serverless model.

In this course, you will learn how to create your own Azure Functions apps and visualize how full applications can be built using Azure Functions' powerful, yet simple model. We will explore the tools needed to support development, both locally and in the Azure Portal, and explore the different triggers, bindings and deployment models that are possible.

By the end of this course, you should have a fundamental understanding of what Microsoft Azure Functions is, how it can be used and how it interacts with other services. This course aligns with training required for the Exam AZ-204: Developing Solutions for Microsoft Azure, though it is not an official training guide. Ultimately, you will know enough about developing with Azure Functions to be functional in your workspace, without taking the exam.
