New cloud programming models enabled by serverless architectures are emerging, allowing developers to focus more sharply on creating their applications and less on managing their infrastructure. The OpenWhisk project started by IBM and now part of Apache provides an open source platform to enable these cloud-native, event-driven applications which run on the IBM Cloud Functions.
At this live coding event, Daniel Krook provides an overview of serverless architectures, introduces the OpenWhisk programming model, and then deploys an OpenWhisk application on the IBM Cloud, while you watch, step-by-step.
