Azure Durable Function gotcha

I’ve been creating a particular sequential workflow with Durable Functions and I hit a strange problem where it would get to about step 3 and it just would not proceed past it. I couldn’t see any obvious error. The issue was that the state being stored from that call was larger than the maximum size for an Azure Table Row (in this case it was a return value). This is important because that’s where Durable Functions stores the state. So be careful out there, keep your state small or save it yourself (e.g. to Blob)
