New technologies seem to arrive fast and furious these days. We were just getting used to our new container world when serverless arrived. But is it better, faster, and cheaper, as the hype suggests?

Daniel Krook explores a real application packaged using popular open source container technology and walks you through a migration to an event-oriented serverless paradigm, discussing the trade-offs and pros and cons of each approach to application deployment and examining when serverless benefit applications and when it doesn’t.

You’ll learn considerations for using serverless API frameworks and how to reuse some of your containerization strategy as you move from more traditional application models to an event-driven world.

This session is sponsored by IBM.
