Test your programming prowess while learning a new technology, Azure Functions.
In order to get started with the Azure Functions Challenge, you will first need an Azure Functions environment. There are two ways to create a Functions App to help you along your way:
Try Azure Functions is an easy way to get started, as it enables you to try Azure Functions without the need for an Azure account or a credit card.
Get started using the Try Functions experience here.
Get started with your existing account here.
Also check out the new Visual Studio Tools for Azure Functions. Use it to build and debug your function locally and then publish or zip deploy to your test function. If you already have an Azure subscription, you can also remotely debug your functions.
Azure Functions run on the concept of trigger & bindings, this means you must specify which event needs to be invoked in order for the function to run, then from there what additional services the function needs to communicate with during its execution which could be either input or output or in some cases, nothing at all.
After every challenge is successfully completed, you will earn a badge!
