Three Ghosts of Serverless – A look into the Past, Present, and Yet to Come (Oracle)
Serverless computing continues to rise in popularity and together with microservices and containers now dominates modern development conversations. With software architecture evolving faster than ever, businesses must adapt in order to compete for increasingly finicky and demanding customers. Through a narrative that takes us from the past into the future, this talk dives deep into the core of why serverless computing exists, how to get started today, and where the trends are taking us into the “yet to come”.
I am a 3x entrepreneur, most recently as co-founder and CEO of Iron.io where we grew a multi-million dollar ARR business helping pioneer serverless computing including some of the earliest usages of the term "serverless" in 2010. Sorry for that. We sold the company in 2017 and joined Oracle. I am now Vice President of Serverless at Oracle, currently leading The Fn Project, open source serverless FaaS platform and orchestration.
