Introduction to Apache Openwhisk Serverless Platform
Join us for an introduction to Serverless concepts including Actions and Triggers on the OpenWhisk Serverless open source platform. Apache OpenWhisk (Incubating) is an open source, distributed Serverless platform that executes functions (fx) in response to events at any scale. The idea is for developers to stop worrying about server management and focus on code. OpenWhisk manages the infrastructure, servers and scaling using Docker containers so you can focus on building amazing and efficient applications. We will look at the serverless landscape, current shortcomings and some workarounds. The lecture will be followed by a demo.
