Adventures in Apache OpenWhisk

A presentation at Serverless Days Cardiff in in Cardiff, UK by Rob Allen

Apache OpenWhisk is an Open Source serverless platform suited to a wide range of applications from IoT & chatbots through to microservices and web hooks. In this session, I’ll introduce OpenWhisk and show you how it works.

We’ll look at it’s key architectural concepts including actions, triggers, rules and packages which will show you how a serverless function integrates into a wide application. I’ll also look at the API Gateway functionality that makes building APIs that much easier. This session is recommended for tech leads and developers of all levels wanting to know about serverless and the OpenWhisk project.
