Azure Serverless Computing Cookbook: Build and monitor Azure applications hosted on serverless architecture using Azure functions, 3rd Edition Praveen

Discover recipes for implementing solutions to real-world business problems through serverless applicationsKey FeaturesTest, troubleshoot, and monitor Azure functions to deliver high-quality and reliable cloud-centric applicationsUnderstand Visual Studio's integrated developer experience for Azure functionsExplore best practices for organizing and refactoring code within the Azure functionsBook DescriptionThis third edition of Azure Serverless Computing Cookbook guig code within the Azure functionsBook DescriptionThis third edition of Azure Serverless Computing Cookbook guides you through the development of a basic back-end web API that performs simple operations, helping you understand how to persist data in Azure Storage services. You'll cover the integration of Azure Functions with other cloud services, such as notifications (SendGrid and Twilio), Cognitive Services (computer vision), and Logic Apps, to build simple workflow-based applications.With the help of this book, you'll be able to leverage Visual Studio tools to develop, build, test, and deploy Azure functions quickly. It also covers a variety of tools and methods for testing the functionality of Azure functions locally in the developer's workstation and in the cloud environment. Once you're familiar with the core features, you'll explore advanced concepts such as durable functions, starting with a hello world example, and learn about the scalable bulk upload use case, which uses durable function patterns, function chaining, and fan-out/fan-in.By the end of this Azure book, you'll have gained the knowledge and practical experience needed to be able to create and deploy Azure applications on serverless architectures efficiently.What you will learnImplement continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) of Azure functionsDevelop different event-based handlers in a serverless architectureIntegrate Azure functions with different Azure services to develop enterprise-level applicationsAccelerate your cloud application development using Azure function triggers and bindingsAutomate mundane tasks at various levels, from development to deployment and maintenanceDevelop stateful serverless applications and self-healing jobs using durable functions Who this book is forIf you are a cloud developer or architect who wants to build cloud-native systems and deploy serverless applications with Azure functions, this book is for you.
