    The Discussion

      Please dont say PMs dont know how to code, PMs who ship SDKs should know how to code :)

      It was just meant as a joke. :) I do know how to code, just not at the level of the developers on my team, which is my point of reference. In a past life I was a dev; now I mostly write samples and demos rather than product code. 

      At any rate, perhaps not the best joke to instill confidence in my audience!

      Hi Donna, in my view it is great decision that Azure Functions is delivered as an independent package with CLI, so that it can be used / developed from VS Code, CLI, etc.. Really nice for all developers, not only full VS users.

      Glad to hear you like that, we intentionally chose this design to be so flexible.
