Serverless has become the new style of coding, and it can be used to offload your mobile apps without incurring unnecessary costs. Get an intro into serverless/function-as-a-service/cloud functions technologies and learn why startups and enterprises are so excited about using it.
This is a hands-on workshop style meetup - please come with your laptop. You will be able to write up your first serverless function in IBM Cloud using a free account. The created serverless function will use IBM Watson AI service.
In addition we will be demoing JS and Swift Serverless Functions, we will be discussing solutions with Kafka and Docker, and covering:
- Who are the players in the Serverless ecosystem?
- What are some use cases for Serverless solutions - with using a Docker as the Polyglot action
- Best practices for the Serverless architecture for Message Oriented Middleware events
- Whether going Serverless is really faster, better, cheaper for developers and organizations
If you want to learn more please come and join us for this workshop!

Cypress code is very similar to BDD tests written in other testing libraries so the learning curve is pretty low. Additionally it will save screen shots of the UI before and after different actions have taken place, and allows you to save all of this data into the cloud for your customers. You can also create plugins and get crazier with Cypress if you’d like.
In this talk we’ll start at the beginning, show you how to install Cypress and start using it. We’ll build some basic tests, show you a few options for configuring and running Cypress and provide info on where to go from there.

The Raspberry Pi is a powerful, yet portable, computer that is compatible with many hardware modules, making it a desirable Internet of Things (IoT) device. Pair it with the Go programming language and you have powerful applications built specifically for the ARM architecture which the Raspberry Pi operates.
HERE XYZ is a cloud-based data management service for location data, making it a powerful tool when combined with many IoT projects.
In this session we'll explore how to collect GPS data with a Raspberry Pi and Golang, then display it in real-time as the data is collected, on an interactive map using HERE XYZ.

More than an epic frat from the 80’s, today we have AWS Lambda, which is taking running code without servers to the next level. In this talk Chris will go over the different ways to write NodeJS applications that will run on the AWS Lambda serverless framework, including developing locally with debugging tools, deploying to the cloud, and exploring the Lambda console.
