Microservices and serverless — a match made in heaven.

Join us for a spectacular talk on the hype around microservices and serverless with THE mircoservices expert, Sam Newman.

Microservices and serverless continue to be two of the most hyped terms in the software industry. Sam takes a critical point of view on the hype and suggests that we cut to the heart of what makes them important before we can get the most out of them.

Sam is still convinced that serverless technology offers the potential to make teams significantly more productive. However, he sees that people are confused about what serverless actually is, and whether or not things like cloud functions mean we no longer need to worry about microservices.

Can we pretend that servers no longer exist?

In this talk, you'll learn:

  • Why serverless, especially FAAS, technology is so powerful
  • How severless technology and microservices fit together
  • Tips for adopting serverless, specifically with incremental adoption
  • Insight on how well these two go together so that perhaps, just perhaps, you can stop worrying about servers
