7:00pm-8:00pm - Serverless IoT @ iRobot

Aaron Kammerer, Global AWS Platform Manager, iRobot

The numbers vary, but all predictions agree there will be massive growth in the Internet of Things market over the next few years. Serverless architecture enables IoT companies, from old-world appliance manufacturers with no experience in cloud computing to cloud-native startups just beginning their journey, to focus on delivering value to their customers while expending minimal resources on cloud operations. However, as a nascent technology, serverless has many rough edges. iRobot has implemented a completely serverless application supporting its vast fleet of connected Roombas, and in this talk I'll share the benefits we've reaped and obstacles we've encountered.
