Azure Functions

Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in other Azure services, SaaS products, and on-premises systems. With Azure Functions, your applications scale based on demand and you pay only for the resources you consume. Azure Functions provides an intuitive, browser-based user interface allowing you to create scheduled or triggered pieces of code implemented in a variety of programming languages.

  1. Keep supporting Powershell in Azure Functions!

    I went to set up Azure functions for a new client and had to delete and re-create my application so I could downgrade to runtime 1.0 in order to use a powershell function. Even AWS has realized the proliferation of Powershell and now allows it to be used in Lambda functions. I have probably thousands of administrative scripts in my archives that could easily be ported to Azure functions. I'd move to AWS before I'd invest the time to re-write them all.

    • Support Linux + Python support for Azure functions

      Please support python based Azure functions that run in a Linux Docker container.

      Linux Docker containers are already supported so we are half of the way there and Python is working/supported on windows preview.

      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-create-function-linux-custom-image

      Currently if you try to create a simple python based Azure function on Linux preview you get the error: HttpTriggerPy1: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

      The use case here is being able to run "enterprise" python 2 environments with hard dependencies on Linux. I can verify python runs correctly and can send an example Dockerfile if needed.
