Oracle Cloud Functions Now Supports C# — Visual Studio Magazine
Oracle Cloud Functions now supports C#
C# coders can now use the Functions service in Oracle Cloud to create and deploy functions typically used in serverless and event-driven computing.
Similar to Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions, and AWS Lambda, Oracle Cloud Functions is a serverless platform that allows developers to build, run, and scale applications without managing any infrastructure.
Now C# coders who, for whatever reason, don’t want to work with one of the “Big 3” vendors, have a new option in Oracle Cloud – sometimes ranked among the top five cloud computing platforms.
Oracle this week announced the new support, saying, “A new Functions Development Kit (FDK) is available for C# (.NET 3.1).”
We assume that Oracle, not being fully immersed in the Microsoft-centric development space, meant .NET Core 3.1 and not the older .NET Framework 3.1 circa 2012. Currently, of course, .NET 7 is in the works for a 2022 launch, after .NET 6 and .NET 5, which came after .NET Core 3.1.
Although Oracle Cloud Functions language support is running a few versions behind for C#/.NET, it is more up to date for other languages as shown in the graphic above.
