Debugging Azure Functions in Visual Studio

I wrote this article here where I talk about how to debug and troubleshoot an Azure Bot service. Since the development approaches are very similar between the Bot Service and an Azure Function, I wonder if this feature will ever support the Bot Service. It would be much easier doing that versus the example I documented. That would be cool.

You can download the Visual Studio Tools for Azure Functions here.
