Come and learn all about Serverless at SFHTML5

March 23, 2019  |  Meetup

Serverless, or more appropriately lessServer, is the new most talked about architecture pattern. The idea is for developers to stop worrying about server management and focus on code. The serverless platform takes care of the infrastructure, servers and scaling. However, if you build your serverless application with the monolithic mindset, not only are you missing out on the strengths of serverless, it could actually be hurting you in the long run.

In this talk, we will see what serverless is and then think about ways to maximize on the strengths of serverless including event-driven design and API gateways. Finally, serverless is relatively new and we will look at what the shortcomings are with the current technology and how to mitigate them. We will use Apache OpenWhisk as our serverless platform. Apache OpenWhisk is an open source, distributed Serverless platform that executes functions (fx) in response to events at any scale. The talk will include live demo of building and deploying an application to OpenWhisk.
