What is "Serverless"? - Moderated by Kim Bannerman, IBM; Kenny Bastani, Ruben Orduz, Jason Kennedy, & Tyler Britten, IBM, Casey West & Kenny Bastani, Pivotal

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We all have heard these "Serverless" or "NoOps" buzzwords lately. So, why do these matter? How does it affect Cloud Foundry? Are they affronts or sources of impulse for the platform and community and CF technology? Should CF take a stance or just let the buzz fizz?

The thrust and motivation of this panel is the increased (mis)use of buzzwords like "serverless" and "NoOps" floating around and how those tend to be conflated with other technologies like PaaS, CF, and other fast-deployment technologies.

Please note it's not supposed to be a critique or the merits of the technologies discussed. It's a constructive and educational panel on the nomenclature and messaging and how that impacts Cloud Foundry and the tech community at large.
