1900: Serverless, OpenFaaS and GitOps: Events all the way down by John McCabe
John McCabe is a contributor to the OpenFaaS project, and a senior engineer at Puppet working on product incubation.
Serverless, OpenFaaS, and GitOps: Events all the way down
What is Serverless and what does it mean for your organisation, how can OpenFaaS help and what is GitOps.
This talk introduces the OpenFaaS project, how to build functions and then explores real-world examples of how and why people are leveraging an event-driven architecture, culminating in using OpenFaaS functions to build a GitOps pipeline that deploys OpenFaaS functions.
You can deploy OpenFaaS in 60 seconds on Kubernetes and other orchestrators through the extensible architecture. Functions can then be built using code templates for your favourite programming language or deployed directly from the community Function Store. The project focuses on ease of use through its UI and CLI which can be used to test and monitor functions. Observability and auto-scaling for demand are provided through integrations with Prometheus and AlertManager.
OpenFaaS won Best Cloud Computing Software 2017 from InfoWorld and has a thriving community with 100 contributors, 2300 commits and over 12k stars.
