Ebook: Developing Serverless Applications

Share this post:

The driving value of Serverless development is all about focusing on the core of your software business. You can purely focus on the application itself and it’s code and functionality.  The Cloud made it possible to deploy applications without worrying about the hardware. Serverless takes it even further where infrastructure management is more abstracted from the developer and thus allows you to focus on the application itself.

IBM Cloud Functions based on Apache OpenWhisk provide a simple, easy to use way to adopt serverless programming for any organization. This book goes into detail about what IBM Cloud Functions does, how to use it, and provides multiple examples of how to deploy serverless programs. The text walks through installation, creating actions, checking for errors, and exposing actions to be used in client-side applications. While Cloud Functions supports multiple different programming languages, this book focuses on JavaScript, but there’s no need to be a JavaScript expert.

To give an idea of you’ll get from the book, here is the table of contents:

* Introduction

* IBM Cloud Functions [OpenWhisk] Basics

* Working with Actions

* Using Functions [OpenWhisk] Actions

* Building Sequences

* Working with Packages

* Using Triggers and Rules

* Going Further with IBM Cloud Functions [OpenWhisk]

Show me Serverless, don’t tell me

See how GreenQ applied serverless technology to municipal garbage collection. You’ll get the details on how the system uses sensors on garage trucks and bins, integrates with city traffic monitoring systems, and analyzes data on residential waste patterns to continuously improve collection schedules and routes.
