Apache OpenWhisk is a serverless open source cloud platform that executes functions in response to events at any scale. This developer code pattern shows you how to build a podcast downloader using serverless technology and introduces you to serverless processes and programming.
As a developer, you have to stay current with the latest programming techniques and tools. With the explosion of mobile apps and a virtually unlimited number of connected devices, you need to understand how to build software that works efficiently and dependably.
Serverless programming is a perfect match for microservices, mobile, IoT – all kinds of apps. It lets you develop lightweight code that executes on demand.
This code pattern will help you dive into serverless programming by walking you through the steps to build an app for downloading podcasts. You’ll use IBM Cloud Functions, the IBM flavor of Apache OpenWhisk, along with IBM Cloud Object Storage, to learn how to put together a distributed microservices app, plus some well-known web frameworks.
When you’ve completed this pattern, you’ll understand how to:
