Join us for an evening session on Serverless computing
• 6 PM - 7 PM: Code First in the Cloud - Going Serverless
Speaker: Jeremy Likness (https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeremylikness/)
Talk Abstract: Serverless takes traditional Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to the next level by empowering developers to focus on their code first. Learn how to abstract away servers, build event-driven code that scales quickly and saves costs while seamlessly integrating into the DevOps workflow. Focusing on business logic means getting apps to market, faster. Discover for yourself the power of serverless with examples in Node.js that leverage Azure’s Functions and Logic App services.

• 7 PM - 7:30 PM: Food and networking break
• 7:30 PM - 8.00 PM: Leverage Minio event notifications for Serverless architecture
Speaker: Deepa Mahalingam (https://www.linkedin.com/in/deepamali/)
Abstract: Learn the concepts of building applications with serverless architecture and benefits of this approach. Then see the demo of a simple serverless application using Minio. The demo app will particularly explore how to use lambda functions with Minio's notification capabilities. We'll see how Minio event notification feature can be leveraged to create a scalable firehose of data to power an image search application.
