James Ward is a nerd / software developer who shares what he learns with others through presentations, blogs, demos, and code. After over two decades of professional programming, he is now a self-proclaimed Typed Pure Functional Programming zealot but often compromises on his ideals to just get stuff done. After spending too many sleepless nights in data centers repairing RAID arrays, he now prefers higher-level cloud abstractions with appropriate escape hatches. James is a huge Open Source proponent, hoping to never get burned by lock-in again.
Modern serverless technologies are coming in different sorts and ranges. But there is no doubt that it’s bringing significant innovation in the application development space. And today’s developer is trying to grasp the best approach for each cloud vendor. And often she faced with following questions
How do I start?
Which platform supports my language of choice?
How do I manage the application state?
How do I integrate with existing «legacy» systems?
In this presentation, Viktor Gamov and James Ward will walk you through the setup and deploy a serverless application that includes event functions, services, data streaming. For event functions and services we will use the open-source Knative project on Kubernetes. For data streaming, we will use Apache Kafka.
