Upkar Lidder of IBM Developer will introduce the concept of serverless, practical use cases and the key concepts that you need to know to get started.
In this free, hands-on workshop, Upkar Lidder of IBM Developer will walk you through building three serverless applications using the open source Apache OpenWhisk platform.
Get Started with Serverless Using OpenWhisk - Hands On Workshop
Serverless is the new most talked about architecture pattern and quickly becoming a buzz word. The idea is for developers to stop worrying about server management and focus on code. The serverless platform takes care of the provisioning servers, underlying infrastructure, server maintenance security and scaling. We will look at three practical use cases of serverless with example code.
- Secure and Scalable APIs
- Backend micro services
- Event driven programming
Key concepts introduced will include triggers, rules, actions, composition and event driven architecture. 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 Apache OpenWhisk.
