Join The Hottest Conference In Cloud

Austin, TX. April 26-28 2017

New York, London & Tokyo were a hit...

Serverlessconf is a community led conference focused on sharing experiences building applications using serverless architectures. Serverless architectures enable developers to express their creativity and focus on user needs instead of spending time managing infrastructure and servers.

Great projects. Great people.

We want to create a community based event where no Open Initiatives of any kind will be started. We want to focus on great projects being built by great people.

Enabling A Serverless Mindset.

We believe that the future of business lies in leveraging & supporting cloud services. Do more with less, and focus on delivering creative solutions for your users.

Scaling Innovation.

Serverless Architectures take away the heavy lifting of building highly available, scalable, end to end applications. Let others manage the tricky business of scale, so that you can focus on your core business.

2 day conference. 1 day workshops.

We’re assembling the world’s trailblazers in serverless architectures.

  • The Conference

    27-28 April

    World class speakers, panels, lightning talks, 2 days. Serverless Apps, Data Pipelines, & Configuration. Just real world experience building things without harming servers.

  • 5x Pre-Conference Workshops

    26 April

    Learn how to develop, deploy and maintain a serverless application from experts doing it today in production in an intense one day small workshop with 8 hours of content.

Unique workshops taught by the gurus from A Cloud Guru (and a few selected guests) who work with serverless technologies every day.

Workshop #1: Build your own serverless video sharing website with Lambda, API Gateway and Firebase
Sam Kroonenburg: Founder of A Cloud Guru, ex Microsoft.
Daniel Parker: Serverless developer at A Cloud guru.
Learn how to build your very own video sharing website, like YouTube, using serverless technologies. During the workshop you will build an entire end to end system (along with an HTML5 website) that's powered by AWS Lambda and API Gateway, S3, Elastic Transcoder, Firebase, Auth0 and much more. As you are guided through the workshops you will also learn about useful patterns and architectures such as "compute as backend" and "compute as glue". This workshop is suitable for beginners and experts alike (and if you are an expert we'll be sure to challenge you just a little bit more).
Workshop #2: Build a chatbot using Lambda and Serverless Framework
Sanjay Kotecha: Big Data Instructor at A Cloud Guru, ex AWS.
John McKim: Serverless developer at A Cloud Guru, contributor to Serverless Framework.
Everybody likes chat bots so why not build your very own!? In this workshop you will design and a build a serverless chatbot using AWS Lambda and the Serverless Framework. You'll get to integrate your bot with Slack and learn a bunch of cool serverless tips and tricks. At the end we might even add a few more AWS services to make your bot super intelligent. Step-by-step guidance and example code will be provided throughout the workshop so it is suitable for beginners and experts.
Workshop #3: Event driven security in AWS with Lambda
Mike Chambers: Security Instructor at A Cloud Guru.
Adrian Cantrill: DevOps Instructor at A Cloud Guru.
Serverless security might be one of the hottest topics of 2017. Public cloud and serverless architectures throw up challenges to traditional security approaches. First up Mike and Adrian discuss these challenges. But in addition, this workshop will explore the many ways that serverless components can enhance AWS cloud security for both serverless and ‘traditional’ cloud workloads. This workshop bridges ‘traditional’ and serverless cloud on AWS, and is a must for anyone targeting secure production systems with Amazon's technologies.
Workshop #4: Introduction to Alexa Development
Ryan Kroonenburg: Founder of A Cloud Guru. Has taught AWS to over 100,000 engineers.
Nick Triantafillou: DevOps Instructor at A Cloud Guru.
This workshop is designed for absolute beginners both to Alexa and to developing in NodeJS. You do not need to have any programming experience, nor any echo development experience. In this workshop we will build a total of 5 skills and we will teach you how to customize each skill. We will also teach you how to make interactive stories using Alexa and how to submit your skill to the Alexa store.
Workshop #5: Develop a serverless weather bot with OpenWhisk and Serverless Framework
Dr. Andreas Nauerz: Technical Product Manager for IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk.
Michael Behrendt: Chief Architect for core platform of IBM Bluemix.
Learn the basics and strengths of IBM's open-source serverless platform OpenWhisk. In this workshop you will learn how to develop serverless applications composed of loosely coupled microservice-like functions. You'll explore OpenWhisk's latest CLI and UI and become an OpenWhisk star by implementing a weather bot using IBM's Weather Company Data service and Slack. You will also investigate how to use the recently added API Gateway and Web Actions capabilities. Finally, you will find out how to package and deploy your entire serverless application together using the Serverless Framework.
