Everything is serverless and serverless is everywhere these days. Every company has products that are serverless it seems and more and more developers want to use cutting-edge technologies like Functions-as-a-Service and fully managed backend APIs. Blinded by the newest shiny toy, once more we seem to ignore the importance of the actual business.
In this talk we look beyond the hype and see what serverless really is about. By learning about terms like “Time To Market” and “Total Cost of Ownership”, developers can talk to business people at eye level using the same language. Knowing about different collaborative modeling approaches leads to the shared understanding needed to build “the right thing”. Modern serverless CI/CD and observability tools ensure the continuous delivery of value to the users. We’ll see how DevOps and agile software development fit into today’s serverless world and eventually how it’s all about people and not so much about technology.
