FaaS and Furious – 0 to Serverless in 60 Seconds, Anywhere

Alex Ellis, VMware

We start by going from Zero to Serverless in 60 seconds, then work backwards from there. You’ll see what it took to build an Open Source Serverless platform that can run any code, on any cloud – at any scale. Meet OpenFaaS, or Serverless Functions Made Simple for Docker and Kubernetes. You’ll learn how the three core values developers first, operationality simple and community-centric lead to 14k GitHub stars and Alex Elliswide adoption.

We’ll also explore how and why companies such as Vision Bank and BT Research are adopting OpenFaaS for their serverless functions and how OpenFaaS Cloud combines GitOps and Functions to deliver a multi-user serverless experience to teams of all sizes. We then wrap up with a live interactive demo where Alex will give you access to his bank account!
