Looking Back at the Future of Serverless

A little over five years ago Amazon Web Services launched a revolutionary new concept called Lambda. With AWS Lambda it was possible to run a little piece of code, on-demand, in the Cloud. It would automatically scale, and you would only have to pay for it if it actually ran. Around the same time the term ‘Serverless’ was coined. For a while Serverless was synonymous with Functions as a Service (FaaS). In recent times Serverless has moved beyond just functions and expanded to middleware, and other higher level managed services provided by cloud vendors.

In this talk I will look back at what Lambda and the likes have brought us in these past five years. I will discuss the current state of Serverless and how it is likely to progress into the future. But more importantly, I will debate how Serverless will fundamentally change everything you know about software development.
