The meetup will open with some news items that happened the past month in the Go world (5 minutes)
Title of the main talk: "Going Serverless" (20 - 30 minutes)
Serverless is an architectural concept that enables developers to run code on a server without having to provision servers themselves.
In this talk we will look at what serverless is (and what it is not). A demo will show how your Go code can be run on serverless architectures by using Google Cloud Functions as the provider.
