In a world dominated by cloud and smart devices, we need to prepare ourselves for the future. Using technology in a smart way we can change the way we do business and design our day-to-day solutions. In the era of microservices and distributed systems, we want to tackle the next computation model – Serverless Computing.
Let’s talk about Serverless Computing inside the cloud and compare it with the microservices approach, to discover the best approaches.
GROUP HEAD OF CLOUD, ENDAVA
SERVERLESS FUNCTIONS OR MICROSERVICES?
A trick question in the cloud era, where we have both options available at our feet. What should we use? What are the trade-offs? Why should I use one and not the other? Join this session and you might find answers to these questions and more.
He is a technology enthusiast working as Group Head of Cloud within Endava. He has vast experience in different technologies and industries. Most of his time is spent working with the cloud, helping companies with innovation, and finding solutions to their business problems. He enjoys building bridges between people and helping others to grow. He shares his knowledge on his personal blog and at different events where he is invited as a speaker. In his spare time, he drives an IT community and he is also a Microsoft Azure MV.

TOUCHING THE CLOUD. A HANDS-ON JOURNEY TO SERVERLESS
We’re just one click away from integrating services based on machine learning for e.g. in our applications. Using AWS Services we’ll reveal more details regarding the “Serverless” buzzword. We’ll be starting from a Product Owner vision, defining the Design, later on implementing live a Serverless application that can translate text, converting it into an audio book and having some fun in between. We’ll also focus on CloudFormation template in order to allocate Cloud resources.
The presentation is enriched with sections of live coding which prove that complex requirements can be resolved easily using cloud services.
He is an all-rounder developer, speaker, conference organiser and cloud community enthusiast. He loves distributed and scalable systems and basically all related to the Cloud ecosystem.

SERVERLESS: AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE
In a competitive environment, flexible tools are needed to quickly iterate and respond to market feedback. Serverless promises increased productivity by reducing the non-differentiating heavy lifting required in running day-to-day operations, allowing engineers to hone in the product's unique strengths. Stand on the shoulder of giants and take advantage of the security, scalability, provisioning lessons that cloud providers have learned. Of course, there is no such thing as a free lunch, and to maximise benefits, the application must work within the limits, assumptions, tooling provided. Each product is unique. Some are better suited to work within those restrictions. Let's have a chat about what makes Serverless tick and share my experience working with AWS Lambda.
He is a pragmatic full-stack engineer who thinks code should ultimately serve clearly defined business needs. Having worked in start-up environments, he has been leveraging AWS solutions to help bring innovative products to market.
