I assisted with this workshop as it related to docker and containers. OpenWhisk not only attaches routes to code snippets, but also can attach and run containers in response. During the various social vents, I got to meet Myrle Krantz, who impressed upon me the value of every contributor, in all forms. It is not only coding that is key, it is the education and documentation as well. No contribution, no matter how small is undeserving of praise and recognition.
This was the 20th Anniverary of the Apache Foundation.
James Gosling was there, so that was cool too.

This workshop will teach you how to develop serverless applications, composed of loosely coupled microservice-like functions, using the Apache OpenWhisk open-source serverless platform.
Starting with getting the development environment set up, it’ll move onto creating, deploying and invoking serverless functions for multiple runtimes. Once you are comfortable creating serverless functions, the next step is to connect functions to events, like message queues, allowing microservices to fire automatically. Finally, we’ll demonstrate how to expose serverless functions as public API endpoints, allowing to build serverless web applications.
Welcome to the future of cloud development, you’ll never want to manage another server again!
