Donny Kurniawan, REA GroupPart of DW16
Have you been disappointed by the shutdown of Parse? Do you dread the costly alternative of provisioning, updating, and managing your back-end servers? This talk introduces the concept of “serverless” where we develop back-end APIs without worrying about servers, virtual machines, and the underlying compute resources. This talk gives an overview of three competing serverless platforms: AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, and IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk. In this practical session, Donny gives a walkthrough and examples of building simple APIs for your next iOS and OS X apps using the aforementioned platforms.
