Traditional serverless technologies are cloud-vendor-specific with limited portability. Come and learn
about emerging open source technologies like Kubernetes, Knative, and GitLab Serverless,
making it possible to write functions once and run them using compute from your cloud provider
of choice.

In this talk I’ll walk through some of the benefits and challenges of using cloud-vendor-specific
serverless technologies. With Kubernetes as an infrastructure abstraction organizations can
take advantage of hybrid (cloud and on-premises) as well as multi-cloud compute. While several
projects enabling functions on top of Kubernetes like Kubeless and OpenFaaS have emerged,
Knative has begun to pick up the most traction. GitLab has built GitLab Serverless on top of
Knative to enable write once run anywhere functions. This talk with give an architecture
overview, technical how-to, and discuss some real-world use cases.
