2020-02-04, 10:20–11:10, B. Con

Serverless (or Functions as a Service) tends to get thrown in the "paradigms nice for developers" bucket, but Serverless can provide meaningful benefits to Operations, DevOps, and SRE teams. In a world where everything is presented or controlled via an API, Serverless' event driven, api first philosophy can help these teams create new levels of automation that were typically the realm of runbook tooling.

In this talk we'll cover the various open source Serverless frameworks and platforms available. We'll show how to automate basic day to day operational task with Serverless functions. Finally, we will show how to build an open source, automated, Serverless based, event driven pipeline to automatically secure and protect a Kubernetes cluster. Attendees will walk away with fresh ideas on how to leverage Serverless based automation in their operational roles.
