The Serverless PHP Application

A presentation at PHPUGFFM, September 2021 in in 8700 Monrovia, Lenexa, KS 66215, USA by Rob Allen

Serverless platforms are suited to a wide range of applications from IoT and chatbots through to microservices and web hooks. In this session, I’ll look at how serverless applications work and embrace cloud services to live in a world where there are many separate parts that make up the application. I’ll cover the architectural patterns we use to design a serverless application including handling their stateless nature and leveraging event processing to trigger them. I will then turn my attention to showing how these are put into practice by looking at how they can be implemented in Apache OpenWhisk or AWS Lambda.
