Serverless, Well Actually kepford Tue, 08/21/2018 - 15:06

What's the deal with all this serverless talk? In this session you will learn the basic concepts around serverless. Serverless is a broad term used to describe an approach where the developer doesn't have to manage the server, only pays for what resources they use, and where scaling is automatic. We will take a beginner friendly look at this approach to development as well as walk through real world examples of use cases. Serverless has many uses, especially for decoupled projects. Attendees will leave with a good working knowledge on the subject.

From Monolith to Microservice: Modernizing a Legacy Codebase with gRPC

From humble beginnings as an internal infrastructure tool connecting microservices at Google, gRPC now powers microservices at companies like Netflix, Square, and even games like Pokemon Go. gRPC is language agnostic and can easily plug into any environment, making it an easy choice for modernizing (and standardizing!) infrastructure. In this talk, I will share a case study on how you can modernize an API by breaking it down into gRPC-powered microservices, and how your team can save time by using gRPC-generated client stubs.
