Serverless architecture fundamentals
Who is this presentation for?
- Architects and developers
Serverless doesn’t mean no servers—it’s a metaphor for a new way of designing applications that builds on microservices. Moving to serverless allows you to take your application development, deployment, and economics to a new level while delivering software to your customers faster and cheaper. But there are also significant trade-offs to keep in mind.
Pratik Patel walks you through a short introduction to serverless architecture and explains why it’s an architectural style to pay attention to, especially if your company is already deploying cloud applications. You’ll learn how serverless architecture fits into the world of microservices and examine the pyramid of application development and deployment. You’ll put on your architect hat to look at serverless options and how they impact applications architecture. You’ll leave with a solid understanding of the benefits (faster deployment, more often, with lower cost) and challenges (debugging, data stores, testing, and more) of moving to a serverless architecture.
- A working knowledge of building systems and cloud technology
What you'll learn
- Learn the basics of serverless architecture: its relationship to microservices, cloud native and serverless, common anti-patterns, and rethinking common app design
- Understand how serverless architecture compares to traditional and microservices architecture, how to properly separate out a large app into serverless components, where serverless fits into the deployment pyramid, and options for building serverless apps
