Docker based FaaS using fnproject.io (Hands on workshop)

Oslo Teknologihuset - Pilestredet 56 Oslo - View Map Oslo
Tue, Apr 10, 2018, 5:30 PM (CEST)

About this event

• What we'll do
We'll look in-depth at Fn Project - an Open Source Serverless Compute Platform.

To start with there will be a chance to discuss what "serverless" even means, what Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) platforms are for, what they're good at and what they're not. Then we will see how to create our own functions, run and test them locally and deploy them to a FaaS platform to build event-driven applications. Some knowledge of Docker will be useful here but not essential.

We will look into what architectural patterns FaaS enables and encourages and how we can use it as a platform to build larger applications. If there is any interest, we can also look behind the scenes at how Fn Project is architected, and how it is similar/different to other Faas platforms.'

This will be a hands-on session, so at least one laptop for every two people would be helpful.
