In Detail

Microsoft provides a solution you can use to easily run small segments of code in the Cloud: Azure Functions. Azure Functions provides solutions for processing data, integrating systems, and building simple APIs and microservices. The course starts with intermediate-level videos on cloud application development, along with configuring notifications using the SendGrid and Twilio services and the key features of Azure Functions. Then, you'll delve into the core aspects of Azure Functions (such as the services it provides and how you can develop and write Azure functions) and explore continuous integration and continuous deployment with Visual Studio Team Services. By the end of this video, you will have all the skills required to work with serverless code architectures, thus providing continuous delivery to your users.
