ASP.NET Core Azure Serverless
This post is about how to resize images uploaded to a blob storage using Azure functions. In my current project, system used to resize the image while uploading the image to blob storage. This approach got two major drawbacks - the process will take some time and the resize is implemented using System.Drawing - which is not recommended to use in Server side applications. By implementing a function - which triggers while someone uploads a photo to blob storage - using ImageSharp - resize the image. Since the code is very minimal I am using the Azure portal to build the Azure Function. In the portal, click New and Search for Functions, select Function App. And you need to provide a name, resource group and storage.

The application has few console application, which is used to do schedule operations using Windows scheduled tasks. So as I migration to PAAS, I choose Azure WebJobs, so that I can easily convert the existing applications to Azure WebJobs. Only change I had to do is including two files - run.bat file for execution of the console app and settings.job file for the schedule interval configuration.
