As a term, “serverless” can be as confusing (or misleading) as “cloud” - what does it actually mean and what are the benefits a developer can reap from going serverless? In this talk, I’ll explain what serverless means to me. I’ll explain where it makes sense to consider serverless as well as when it does not.

I’ll then demonstrate IBM’s open source offering, OpenWhisk, and show how to work with to build serverless components with JavaScript. I’ll show as much code as possible in the time given and will most likely have numerous demos with cats in them.

I’ll also cover Visual Studio Code integration and show how to debug your serverless code on the fly as well.
