Azure Functions timer trigger CRON expressions: useful resources
Azure Functions is one of Microsoft’s serverless cloud offerings. It allows you to run a piece of code in the cloud that can be triggered by a wide range of events, including a timer trigger to run a function based on a schedule.

Below are some helpful resources for working with these expressions.
