Serverless computing or FaaS (Function as a Service) provides developers with a "server less" deployment and operational model relieving them from the need to worry about complex infrastructure and operational tasks. FaaS enables developers to focus on developing and executing code (actions) in response to events while paying only for actual consumed resources and not for idle resources. In this presentation we will present IBM Cloud Functions powered by OpenWhisk Apache project, deep dive into its architecture and core components, and discuss some practical design patterns and best practices for common business use cases scenarios.
