Fn project and functions
Serverless computing and FaaS (Function as a Service) are the new blacks! They radically change how software is organized, deployed, and charged. Fn project is an open-source project, which features a code-first approach to building polyglot applications on top of a FaaS platform and supports writing functions using various languages (ex. Go, Java, Kotlin). The session discuss the different development phases (bootstrapping, local and remote deployment, testing…) and address aspects such as functions orchestration. With the Fn Flow API, a distributed Promise based API, it’s possible to compose multiple functions into meaningful applications.
