RoyalMail API cost reduction by Azure Functions

I would like to describe you one of the last cases of Azure Functions usage. In one of my projects I was using RoyalMail API to find address that is connected with provided post code. System has been delivered to users from England. In that country when you provide post code you are able to find out quite precise address and you can speed up form filling. […]

Caching in Azure Function – how you can use Redis

I believe that you should know that Microsoft has prepared some set of components that can be used for integration purposes. You are able to consume the following services in our function: Azure Storage, Azure Event Hubs, Azure Service Bus, Azure Mobile Apps, Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Notification Hubs, Twilio, SendGrid. On the one hand this list is not so big. On the other one you can address with those services a lot of typical scenarios. But sometimes you need to do something more. Today I would like to share with how easily you can use Redis cache in Azure [...]

Serverless Azure – Environment preparation

Progressive .NET 2017 conference is almost there. During the conference I will be conducting workshop regarding Serverless Azure. You should prepare your computers to be able to gain as much knowledge as it is possible from workshop. Please install or organise the following elements: Azure account on which you will be able to work. Of course, it can be a test account. Visual Studio Code Visual Studio 2017 version 15.3.x with Azure Functions Tools for Visual Studio extension installed azure-functions-core-tools Azure Storage Explorer Postman. Unfortunately, without those tools it will be hard for you to take part in this workshop. [...]

Mocking API with Azure Functions

The biggest advantage of Azure Functions is reducing time-to-market of our application. We can also use them to make prototyping more effective. From some time you are able to define mock of our function in Azure Portal. Function defined as mock will respond on request according to its configuration. I believe that this solution has a great potential. It can be very useful in all sort of application’s prototyping activities. You just need to define our end point and its response. And that is all. You can start using it in you prototype. So you define correct connections in your application [...]

Together with examples, I will point out main pros and cons [...]

Azure Functions – Lessons learned

Nowadays all topics related to Cloud and Serverless terms have become very popular. One of such elements are Azure Functions. Microsoft defines it as: Azure Functions is a solution for easily running small pieces of code, or “functions,” in the cloud. You can write just the code you need for the problem at hand, without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it. Functions can make development even more productive, and you can use your development language of choice, such as C#, F#, Node.js, Python or PHP. Pay only for the time your code runs and trust [...]
