C# ASP.NET Azure Azure Functions
This post is Azure functions. Azure functions is a new service offered by Microsoft. 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 Azure or third party service as well as on-premises systems. Azure Functions is a solution for easily running small pieces of code, or “functions,” in the cloud. You can write just the code you need for the problem at hand, without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it. This can make development even more productive, and you can use your development language of choice, such as C#, F#, Node.js, Python or PHP. Pay only for the time your code runs and trust Azure to scale as needed. In this post I am creating a Hello World Azure function, it will return HTML color code of a given color.

C# asp.net core NancyFx
This post is about using NancyFx in ASP.NET Core. NancyFx is lightweight, low-ceremony, framework for building HTTP based services on .Net and Mono. The goal of the framework is to stay out of the way as much as possible and provide a super-duper-happy-path to all interactions. Nancy is designed to handle DELETE, GET, HEAD, OPTIONS, POST, PUT and PATCH requests and provides a simple, elegant, Domain Specific Language (DSL) for returning a response with just a couple of keystrokes. Integration with NancyFx was available on earlier days (k days) for ASP.NET Core, but in DNX days it lost the support and now it is back.
