What we're about

This is a group for solution architects, developers, and cloud enthusiasts 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 development of projects.

Check out the following blog posts for more information on what this serverless thing is all about:

Serverless: The Future of Software Architecture? (https://read.acloud.guru/serverless-the-future-of-software-architecture-d4473ffed864)

How can serverless architecture help you?

Serverless architecture allows developers to focus on code and their business problem rather than spending time looking after backend infrastructure.

Serverless architecture 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 reduction in the amount of layers and code that one finds in a monolithic application. Less code = more robust systems.

Our 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!
