Azure Functions Challenge

Test your coding skills and learn how to build solutions using Azure Functions at the same time. Earn badges for every challenge you complete and brag to your friends! You can code these challenges in the FREE Azure Functions experience or using your existing Azure subscription. Don't worry, Azure Functions has more than enough free executions for you to last the whole challenge experience!
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.

How to complete the challenges


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


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.


Existing Azure Subscription


Already have an Azure Subscription? It could be a Free Trial, MSDN Benefits, or pay-as-you-go subscription.


Get started with your existing account here.


Visual Studio Tools for Azure Functions

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.


Learn more about 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.

Earn Badges

After every challenge is successfully completed, you will earn a badge!


Show off to your friends by sharing your badge on social media.
