Knative is an open source serverless platform extending Kubernetes to help developers build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads. Whether you write functions or applications, Knative solves many of the common developer burdens like scaling, resource and route management, or logging and tracing without you needing to worry about the underlying infrastructure.
Mark Chmarny offers an overview of the Knative project, covering many of the common developer and operational patterns used to run real-world solutions. You’ll discover how easy it is to wire up your application and trigger your code using the vibrant ecosystem of multicloud event sources. And because Knative is open, you can run it on any cloud or in your own data center where Kubernetes is offered.
