In this Guided Project, you will familiarize yourself with the basics of Azure Serverless Functions and Azure API Management using NodeJS. You're going to create a Function App and two different Serverless Functions, triggered by HTTP calls. You're going to set them up to receive data using both query parameters and path parameters, thus understanding the role of route templates. Then you're going to set up an API Management instance in order to expose them as an unique, homogeneous API that uses path parameters by using inbound processing rules.
