The future will be Serverless

Dec. 9, 2017, 3:40 p.m. - 4:10 p.m.

Software development is on the verge of a new revolution that will change the rules of the Cloud Computing game... again! The new wind of change is called "Serverless" and you should definitely get ready for it! In this talk I will illustrate why I believe Serverless will be a game changer in the industry, how did we get to have Serverless and how to get started with it to build real products.

Few reasons why you will love this talk:

- It will cover the history of cloud computing so far (you will have goose bumps seeing how far we got in less than a decade!)
- It will explain what Serverless actually is (and surprise... there are still servers somewhere...)
- It will underline the major pros and cons of Serverless
- It will provide a quick tour of the available providers and supported languages/technologies
- It will show how to get started with the Serverless paradigm, either migrating existing apps or building a new one from scratch.
- I will tell some real life experience I have after almost 2 years of developing Serverless applications In Node.js/JavaScript

Luciano is a Software Engineer born in 1987, the same year that the Nintendo released “Super Mario Bros” in Europe, which, by chance is his favourite game! His primary passion is code and he is extremely fascinated by the web, smart apps and everything that’s creative like music, art, and design. He started coding very early at the age of 12 using his father’s old i386 provided only with DOS and the QBasic interpreter. He is now a Senior Software Developer at Planet 9 Energy in Dublin where he has been using the Serverless paradigm for more than 1 year to power up the next-generation electricity provider for the UK market. He is also the co-author of “Node.js design patterns” 2nd edition (Packt, and one of the maintainers of Fullstack Bulletin (, a free weekly newsletter for the ambitious Fullstack developer.
