Serverless is a recent addition to the long list of technologies that promise to accelerate software delivery, reduce the cost of compute ownership and provide unicorns and rainbows for all. And like all industry buzzwords, it generates enthusiasm and skepticism in equal measure – how to move beyond the hype?
ServerlessDays started life as JeffConf, a tongue in cheek conference in the spirit of Paul Johnston’s blog post, “Serverless is just a name. We could have called it Jeff”, an attempt to move beyond the Serverless buzzword and focus on the practical use of function as a service platforms and the value they provide. It is a one day, community-focused, single track event centered on real-world serverless-based solutions. It’s about fostering a community and helping all of us learn from each other as we embrace a new way of building applications.
ServerlessDays Milano 2020 is an evolution of the previous JeffConf Milan in 2017 and the proud confirmation of ServerlessDays Milano in 2018 and 2019, and we look forward to building on the success of the previous ServerlessDays events around the world and learning from where we could do better. Our focus is on building a community through sharing of experiences, accessible without a large commitment of time or money.
