Speaker: Burr Sutter / Kamesh Sampath (Red Hat)
In this session we will start to see “What is Serverless” and what it means to you? We will continue our journey to quickly deploy a serverless platform Apache OpenWhisk on Kubernetes. With the platform ready, we will then move on to demystify what your Java programming model in the serverless world should be. Is this enough for you to build your serverless applications? the answer is an overwhelming NO. You will also need the “tools” to build your serverless applications. Along the way, we will also do a stock check for the inventory of tools that can make the serverless journey quick, easy and productive.
