A SkillsCast for this session is not available.
Join Christos and Luciano in this workshop as they take you through a discovery path and show you how to embrace the serverless architecture in your projects.
They want to help you understanding what serverless really is and why you should use it to power up your next ambitious application whether it’s running on Azure or AWS.
The workshop will involve a fair amount of code that you’ll need to implement to solve different real-world problems and thus at the end you should be familiar and comfortable with the serverless concepts.

What are the typical use cases and the cloud providers you can use
Taking AWS Lambda and Azure Functions for a spin with some entertaining examples
