There is a real buzz in the air about Functions and Serverless software development, and there is an overwhelming number of platforms offering similar but different things. In this first part, Martin Beeby will take a look at the various Serverless platforms available including AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions and opensource efforts like openFASS and fnProject. He will give an overview of how they work, their different approaches and talk about projects that he has built using them.
We will delve deeper into fnProject and show how it uses docker containers to create a serverless platform that you can run anywhere -- any cloud or on-premise. Each function is a container which means anything that runs in a container can be a function. In this talk, we will explore how it works and how to develop an application using this very different approach to application development.
