Develop with WebJobs in Azure
Azure WebJobs run executables or scripts in the context of an application, whether it's a web app, an API app, or a mobile app. Think of them as scheduled tasks (cron jobs) that can be run in the Azure App Service, as opposed to on a virtual machine.
In this hands-on lab, we will deploy a WebJob that resizes images that are uploaded to blob storage. This solution can be used for something like a blog site, where smaller images are required for thumbnails and galleries. 2 Lessons Learned:
- Using Visual Studio to deploy an application to an Azure Web App
- Deploying a WebJob to an Azure Web App
- Modifying the properties of the WebJob in the Azure Portal
- Using the WebJob dashboard to view logs
