Adoption of the Serverless model has grown dramatically over the last few years, opening up new opportunities for rapid application development and platform overhead reduction. Commercialized by Amazon's AWS Lambda service, the Serverless deployment model allows developers to deploy code to the cloud without provisioning or paying for servers.
In this 60-minute session attendees will get a detailed look at the Serverless movement, also known as Functions as a Service (FaaS). Solutions from AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platforms will be contrasted with open source solutions such as OpenWhisk, created by IBM to operate in the OpenStack environment.
Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of the Serverless space and the economics and trends around it.
