Azure Functions provides a fantastic platform for building highly scalable and cost-effective APIs. Whether you need an inexpensive API for an infrequently used web site or you need a highly scalable solution having to support bursts of traffic up to millions of requests Azure Functions can fit that bill. In this talk, we'll cover the basics of developing REST APIs using Azure Functions. We’ll start with the overall development experience including language options, development environments, debugging, deployments, and general architectural guidance. Along the way, we’ll introduce you to common development and configuration tasks such as configuring routes, managing authentication, configuring Swagger\OpenAPI, and Azure Functions Proxies. All source code will be available on GitHub.
