6:45 - Serverless architectures with the OpenWhisk open source project: Daniel Krook, IBM
7:30 - Wrap-up
Serverless architectures are one of the hottest trends in cloud computing this year, and for good reason. There are several technical capabilities and business factors coming together to make this approach compelling from both an application development and deployment cost perspective. The new OpenWhisk project provides an open source platform to enable these cloud-native, event-driven applications.
This talk will lay out the technical and business drivers behind the rise of serverless architectures, provide an introduction to the OpenWhisk open source project (showing how it differs from other services like AWS Lambda), and give a demonstration showing how to start developing with this new cloud computing model.
