Getting Started with Azure Service Fabric

I wanted to show a simple example of using Azure Service Fabric to create a reliable & scalable micro service that would perform addition functionality on an input string for example “1+1” using a console application as the client.

The string is parsed out to two integers and calculates the result. Obviously this is extremely simplistic type of example. I wanted to really just do a quick test on passing input and expecting output.

The code is listed up on my GitHub account under the ServiceFabric Repo.
