• Speaker:
Gareth Mc Cumskey has been in web development since the early 2000’s when table based designs and running your own data centers was the thing to do. In 2016, he discovered the power of building Serverless applications and hasn’t looked back; eventually joining the team remotely at Serverless, Inc to help users build and optimise their Serverless applications as a Solutions Architect. He is also based out of Cape Town and spends his off time with his loving wife and two energetic sproglets that keep him on his toes.

• Abstract:
Serverless as a development pattern is gaining in popularity due to its promise of easing infrastructure burden on developers and accelerating solving business problems. As a DevOps practitioner, you can look to Serverless as a way to allow developers to rapidly build out the solutions they need without hampering with the bottlenecks created through the usual infrastructure provisioning options while still maintaining control over what goes into the cloud.
