Azure Functions 2.0 available in IoT Edge
Published date: 14 November, 2018
The Edge Hub binding for Azure Functions has been updated to conform to the Functions Runtime 2.0 pattern of installing bindings from NuGet. This enables the usage of C# precompiled versions of Functions for development rather than C# Script, and makes for a richer local development experience, one that’s closer to the experience of Azure Functions in the cloud. The local development experience will be centered around C#, rather than CSX scripts.
Some restrictions apply:
- The only supported language is C# for now, other languages will follow.
- The only binding supported in Azure Functions running on IoT Edge is the custom edge hub binding.
- Existing code from Azure Functions edge modules should be rebuilt to use this released binding before a solution is put into production.
