Introducing Function Automate

In the last entry I explained how one could use Azure Functions to bring email sending functionality into ADF. However, with the ability to run arbitrary code easily within a pipeline the possibilites are vast and go far beyond sending emails. I've decided to build a collection of functions that enable more and better functionality for ADF. Hopefully, somebody, somewhere, will find them useful.

Now that we can send emails it would be good if could have a slightly less clunky way of writting them than building just manually a string with the message. In the next entry I'll show how to make use of templates to send better, prettier emails much more easily.

Stay tuned and check out the new Function Automate repo!
