Creating a Contact Form API with Azure Functions

I’ve been looking into Azure Functions for the last few months, playing around with various experiments when I have had time. For those who haven’t heard of them, Azure Functions are a service that lets you build event based micro services without the need to manage any infrastructure. For someone who runs a static website without a WebApp server or virtual machine, this can add a lot of additional functionality that you would normally need dedicated infrastructure to provide.
