Azure functions are the ideal building blocks for solutions that extend SharePoint behind the scenes. They can be used to provide custom web services, as custom actions on Flow and Logic Apps, and to run scheduled background processes.
In this session you'll learn how to write Azure functions that integrate with SharePoint. We'll begin with a brief overview of Azure functions and authentication from the SharePoint UI into functions and back into SharePoint remote API's. From there, you'll learn how to build enterprise-class solutions that incorporate robust exception handling and application lifecycle management across staging and production environments.
