Event description

Description

“Serverless” can be defined as a couple simple things: 1 - It’s a programming model for structuring applications as functions and events (basically a manifestation of microservices). 2 - It’s a cloud business model, where use is billed by the function call instead of by the provisioned server, so apps only pay when they run and for how long they run, eliminating over-provisioning and typically reducing costs.

In this talk, we’ll cover the what, why and how of serverless, and learn more about it through running code.

Throughout the session, we’ll focus on how the serverless model is being leveraged in the real world - not just toy functions and demos. Legacy enterprise apps - which are typically monolithic, written by large teams of Java and .Net devs, and resembling a bit of a mud ball - are being shaved down to take advantage of serverless, and we’ll be sharing some early results from those efforts. We'll discuss examples of how Fortune 50 companies are building their serverless projects on the Kubernetes and Mesos clouds they have already deployed.

Le terme “Serverless” a plusieurs significations: 1 - un modèle de programmation pour structurer les applications en tant que fonctions et événements (essentiellement une manifestation de microservices); et 2 - Il s'agit d'un modèle d'entreprise Cloud, où l'utilisation est facturée par l'appel de fonction plutôt que par le serveur provisionné, de sorte que les applications ne paient que lorsqu'elles fonctionnent et pour combien de temps elles courent, éliminant le sur-provisionnement et réduisant les coûts associés.

Dans ce discours, nous allons couvrir le quoi, le pourquoi et comment de Serverless, et en savoir plus à ce sujet en exécutant le code. Nous nous concentrerons sur la façon dont le modèle Serverless est utilisé dans le monde réel - pas seulement les fonctions et démos. Les applications d'entreprise héritées - qui sont généralement monolithiques, écrites par de grandes équipes de développeurs Java et .Net et ressemblant à un peu une grande boule de boue - sont rasées pour profiter de Serverless, et nous partagerons des résultats préliminaires de ces efforts.
