6:30pm-7:00pm Welcome, Serverless Architecture Overview
Wayne Scarano,, Cloud/Cybersecurity Architect

7:00pm-8:00pm - riff is for functions: a FaaS for Kubernetes
Mark Fisher, Pivotal, riff

Riff is an open source polyglot function service built using Kubernetes primitives that allows developers to focus on writing simple and portable units of code. Its unique approach to reactive event streaming enables computations such as time windowing.

This demo-driven presentation will dive into the internal architecture of riff and reveal how the use of patterns such as the function sidecar and layered container images help minimize the surface area of code function developers need to care about.

Mark is the tech lead for riff at Pivotal. His journey to Functions-as-a-Service has been heavily influenced by more than a decade focusing on event-driven architecture with Spring Integration, Spring Cloud Stream, and Spring Cloud Data Flow.

8:00pm - 8:30pm - Networking
