functions built from source using function buildpacks
Functions are a mechanism for converting language idiomatic units of logic into container images that can be invoked over HTTP or used to process streams of messages. Cloud Native Buildpacks are provided to detect the language, provide a language runtime, install build and runtime dependencies, compile the function, and packaging everything as a container.
The function resource is only responsible for converting source code into a container. The function container image may then be deployed to one of the runtimes.
Functions are distinct from applications in the scope and responsibilities of the source code. Unlike applications, functions:
- no main method
- practice Inversion of Control (we'll call you)
- invocations are decoupled from networking protocols, no HTTP specifics
- limited to a single responsibility
