I decided to take a attend a Meetup on Serverless (Oracle Fn project), and it was a lot of fun. The first talk was excellent, and that will be the focus of this post.
The talk started with some history on the speaker, Chad Arimura, and some of the companies he’s launched, as well as a few obligatory slides to level set things ("What is serverless?"). After the brief pre-amble, Chad got into the meat of the presentation, which was close to the quickstart on the Fn github page. There were some important additions, like "hot functions", and the presentation included gracefully fielding some questions like "Why is this a thing?".
Chad pointed people to this post on Medium several times for understanding the purpose and application of Fn: 8 Reasons why we built the Fn Project
The "put it on a bumper sticker" explanation was "multi-cloud, open source lambda", and that was good enough to get my attention. Read the complete article here.
