The writing is on the wall: Serverless and Functions as a Service (FaaS) are coming. Developers are ready to stop worrying about infrastructure entirely and just write code. The big issue with most of the serverless and FaaS platforms is the fear of lock-in: The big clouds make big promises but sometimes you just need to have options. That is where Kubernetes comes in, Kubernetes can be used as the common platform on which your FaaS or serverless stacks can run, giving you many of the advantages without the lock-in. With that in mind, we will compare two of the more popular toolkits for running functions on Kubernetes: Knative and OpenFaaS. Come find out which (if either) of these platforms may be right for you.
Carson Anderson from Domo will be our presenter.
