Working With Azure Functions in VS Code and GitHub
Azure Functionsis a Serverless component from Microsoft that allows you to create event-based functions that can be dynamically scaled to meet the demand. We can work with all kinds of events such as when a file is uploaded to storage, a message appears in the queue or a HTTP request is received.
Using GitHub we can take an existing application, fork it to our account and then create our own version of the application, all from within VS Code.
