There are several reasons why it makes sense to build super-lightweight HTTP services (or, despite all the baggage the word brings, "microservices"). I do not need to go into all the operational or architectural benefits of such approach to system development, as it has been discussed a lot elsewhere.
This blog is a simple step through, which creates an ASP.NET Core Docker image using Visual Studio 2017, deploys it to Docker Hub and then deploys the image to Azure. Thanks to Malte Lantin for his fantastic posts on MSDN. See the links at the end of this post.

Since C APIs are ambiguous, in some cases ObjectiveSharpie will generate some diagnostics. In most cases it will flag methods that have to be bound with the [Verify]. This attribute is used as an indicator on your source code that you need to manually audit the binding, perhaps checking the documentation and adjust the P/Invoke signature accordingly.
I wrote this article here where I talk about how to debug and troubleshoot an Azure Bot service. Since the development approaches are very similar between the Bot Service and an Azure Function, I wonder if this feature will ever support the Bot Service.
