Serverless Deep Dive
Doors Open 18:15 (evening session)
Serverless Deep Dive
No server can be more easily managed than no server. Therefore: meet Serverless, a paradigm that truly approaches the Pay-as-You-Go philosophy once promised by the Cloud.
In this deep dive Bert will explore the Serverless paradigm by diving into the Serverless manifesto first and by explaining the differences between Serverless, FaaS, and PaaS., and then looking at the different Cloud vendors and what they have to offer in the Serverless space.
After the theoretical first part, Bert will start developing some functions with AWS Lambda, since it is, he says, by far the easiest entry point into the world of Serverless. Then he will take a step back to discuss how existing architectures (ie modern web applications) will be impacted. Where does it actually make sense to use this kind of technology and where doesn't it.
Finally Bert will end with a number of drawbacks to consider and to make it a balanced story of both pros and cons.
Besides AWS Lambda, he'll look at alternatives like Apache OpenWhisk and recently announced Project Fn as well.
This talk thoroughly explores Serverless, its impact on existing architectures, and assesses it's usability for Mobile Back-ends as a Service (MBaaS), Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) and for Microservices hosted in the cloud. Internet connectivity permitting, there will be lots of demos too..
