Azure Functions has received support for Python: Microsoft’s FaaS service can host Python workloads for data science, machine learning, and more. So far, the programming language has only been experimentally supported.

Possible applications include data science, machine learning or automated resource management.

This allows the code to be tested locally, breakpoints added or the call stack evaluated:
