Serverless Architecture Concepts
Session scheduled at 1:30-2:20 in Room 3 (Ski-U-Mah)
Frontend development has been rapidly changing over the last few years, with new frameworks and techniques appearing on a near daily basis. However, we continue to build backend architectures in nearly the same ways.
However, times are changing, and a new trend is emerging called serverless architecture. Some call it PaaS, BaaS, mBaaS – I call it awesome.
Being a frontend developer and an innovator has never been easier, as we now can build out applications at an all time fast rate without a team of devops and server side developers. Let’s look at some of the various tech stacks available, pros/cons, and how you can start using serverless architecture in your apps today.
Kelly J. Andrews, Principal Developer Evangelist at Syncano and contributing author, started coding at age 8 when he built a blackjack game in BASIC – and he’s never stopped. While he’s mostly been front-end focused for the last 10 years, his real passion is helping developers succeed by making applications as quick, efficient and robust as possible.
In his free time, he has sung in numerous barbershop quartets and loves karaoke, so don’t be too surprised if you see him singing later.
