Show: 27

Show Overview: Brian and Tyler talk about the new Serverless working group and whitepaper from CNCF, the 4 elements of serverless, the difference between serverless and FaaS, and the on-going role of Ops teams in a serverless world.
Show Notes:

Topic 1 - Let’s talk about the history of serverless within the CNCF, and maybe within the context of PaaS and Kubernetes.

Topic 2 - When talking about Serverless, there seem to be 4 areas to dissect:

  • The thing that executes the function (is this a container orchestrator)
  • The data sources that can be on either side of the function execution 
  • The developer experience (or lack of experience)
  • Billing/Usage/Metering

Topic 3 - What were your key takeaways from reading the CNCF Serverless whitepaper?

Topic 4 - What about Operations? Do those jobs go away? Are there Ops uses for serverless?
