This is a group for like-minded individuals who are interested in serverless technologies. We want to talk about how serverless architecture and serverless technologies such as AWS Lambda can make things easier, cheaper, and help to accelerate the development of projects.
Serverless architecture allows us to focus on the business problem rather than spending time looking after the backend infrastructure. It can help developers build scalable, high-performing, and cost-effective applications quickly. Want to write autonomous microservices? Serverless is perfect for that. Want to run a bunch of scripts in the cloud to do a bit of processing? That's cool too!
Serverless applications can grow, scale, and evolve naturally. Developers do not have to worry about low-level detail, ever.
Traditional architecture requires servers that do not necessarily run at full capacity all of the time. Serverless can be much more granular. With Lambda you only pay for what you use.
Serverless architecture allows for the reduction in the number of layers and code compared to a monolithic application. Less code = more robust systems.
This group will discuss all kinds of technologies that can enable serverless architecture from Lambda to Auth0, from Firebase to IBM BlueMix OpenWhisk, from API Gateway to the serverless framework. Whether you are an expert or just wish to learn what serverless architecture is all about - come and join us. We think you'll love it!
