Episode #118: Serverless software

Published Tues, Jun 27, 2017, recorded Wed, May 24, 2017.

Let's consider the progression we've been on over the past 15 or so years.

We've gone from software and operating systems that we manage running on hardware that we own (and babysit), to virtual machines on our hardware, to IaaS in the cloud and PaaS in the cloud. Then onward to containers, usually docker, running on someone else's systems in the cloud, and maybe even microservices which are conglomerates of these containers working together managed by Kubernetes.

Where do we go from there? I can't tell you the final destination, but I believe we've reached a leaf node in this hierarchy with our topic today.

On this, episode 118 of Talk Python To Me, with Ryan Scott Brown, we are going to explore serverless computing. It's an interesting paradigm shift and I hope you enjoy this conversation.

It was recorded May 24th, 2017.
