Serverless REST API with Azure Functions, Node, JSON and Azure SQL

Javascript / Typescript (and thus Node) are, among Full-Stack and Back-End developers, one of the most common choices to create scalable, elegant, high-performance, REST API to be used by the most diverse clients. Azure Functions are another pretty popular solution that developers use to create scalable solution without having to deal with all the infrastructural woes, as it just allow you to code you own function, deploy it and….done! No IIS or Apache to configure and monitor, no headaches to setup, configure and maintain a load-balanced cluster….just the sheer joy of coding!

Now, as a developer I’d love to be able to use Node and Azure Functions with the database of my choice which, as you can already guess, it Azure SQL. why I think Azure SQL is just the perfect database for the cloud, so I decided to try to create a REST endpoint just using Azure Functions, Azure SQL and Node.

I’m quite new to Node so I thought it could be helpful for anyone in my situation to share what I have learned. Here we go!
