Objective

Create an API hosted in Azure that returns a random text when called. Use the language of your choice.

Tips & Approaches

Here are some services to explore to get started;

  • API Management can be used to expose any backend services.
  • Azure Functions can be executed from requests either directly or through API Management.
  • An API can be hosted as an App Service if using .NET Framework & Web API.
  • A Docker container can be hosted in an Azure VM.

Solution

Check out the live stream below to follow along on how I built three different APIs in Azure.
