Serverless Java in Action with Fn!

Aug 27, 2018 | Voxxed Days Cluj-Napoca 2018

David Delabassée works in the Fn project Developer Relations Team at Oracle. Prior to that, he was involved in Java EE 8 and its transition to the Eclipse Foundation as part of the Jakarta EE initiative. Over the years, David has championed Java extensively throughout the world, presenting at conferences and user groups, large and small. David lives in Belgium. In his spare time, he enjoys playing video games with his daughter and tinkering with technologies such as Home Automation, 3D printers, electronics and pinballs.

 Serverless computing and FaaS (Function as a Service) are the new blacks! This hands-on session will introduce you to Fn, an open source FaaS platform. Attend this session to see that Java is not antinomic to Serverless!

This hands-on session will introduce you to Fn, an open source FaaS platform. And although Fn is by design polyglot (ex. Go, JavaScript…), we will mostly focus on Java (eg. how to write/test/deploy Java functions) and related JVM topics such as Spring Cloud Function or Serverless Kotlin. We will finally discuss an important aspect, i.e. functions orchestration. For that we will use the Fn Flow API, a distributed Promise based API, to compose multiple functions into meaningful applications. Attend this session to see that Java is not antinomic to Serverless!
