Serverless has come onto the scene as a major player in back-end architecture. The idea of Functions as a Service (FaaS), and the ability to create robust applications in a modular, uncoupled way, while eliminating the need for operational overhead and spinning up cumbersome framework implementations, has clearly caught the attention of programmers throughout the industry.

In this episode, we talk about serverless as an option for web application development, while leaning on Azure Functions specifically, and talk about the tooling available in Visual Studio Code, on the command line, and inside of Azure, including working with the Visual Studio Code Azure Functions extension.
