IBM, Developer Advocate

So you've been hearing a lot of buzz about Serverless tech in conjunction with Containers and Mobile, but what exactly is Serverless - and the OpenWhisk Open Source Apache project? Come find out at this session. Serverless has become the new style of coding, and it might be perfect to offload your mobile apps, and container based systems without incurring unnecessary costs.
Join Marek - an author of Serverless Swift book - and get an intro into serverless/function-as-a-service/cloud native technologies in the Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) context and learn why startups and enterprises are so excited about using it. Marek will be demoing Serverless and containers in Swift and iOS, and covering the following:
- Who are the players in the serverless ecosystem
- What are some use cases for serverless and container based solutions - with MBaaS as one of them
- Best practices for the serverless with the container system architecture for MBaaS
- If going serverless is really faster, better, cheaper for developers and organizations
- Live coding examples using Swift (additional languages on request from audience)
