Processing API Data in Azure with Python (part 2/2) Processing API Data in Azure with Python (part 2/2)
In the first part of our blog we focused on data ingestion from a publicly available API, orchestration and monitoring. Now, let us look at our Azure Functions for processing data. We will first give a brief overview of what Azure Functions are, how to use and deploy them to Azure. They are a serverless solution that allows you to focus purely on writing code. Instead of worrying about deploying and maintenance, Azure provides all the up-to-date resources needed to make your app run. We will prepare and deploy two functions for fetching and aggregating data from our REST API source.
