HackJKL and SC5 invite you to Serverless Hackathon to build your first application using Serverless (https://github.com/serverless/serverless) micro-services framework.

In late 2015, AWS introduced new services that profoundly change the way how cloud applications are built. Instead of setting up a virtual machine farms or containers, services can now be created using very lightweight micro-services using Lambda (https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/), and served over REST API using API Gateway (https://aws.amazon.com/api-gateway/). These services are billed per actual usage / handled requests and scale automatically based on demand, making them a very attractive platform for developing new web services.

Serverless is the quickest maturing framework for building these things. New services can be bootstrapped in matter of hours instead of days. Within the hackathon, you will learn how to create a simple AWS backed web service and have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other participants.

We expect you to bring your own computer, have a beginner level experience on AWS and JavaScript, no deep expertise required. SC5 will sponsor snacks & refreshments for the event. WiFi and sockets are available at the site.

After session hangaround will happen at SC5 Office Piippukatu 7 A 7, right across the street from where the session takes place.
