Serverless Architecture Conference program
This year’s conference focuses on 4 different tracks focusing on different aspects of serverless architecture.
- Serverless & Function as a Service: With Functions as a Service (FaaS) software development changes dramatically. In this track we’ll examine serverless platforms, tools and frameworks, as well as the technology itself.
- Kubernetes, Knative & Co.: Containers provide a foundation for modern cloud native systems. Developers and Architects seeking for highly automated deployment will learn in this track how to benefit from Kubernetes, Knative & Co.
- Service Mesh & Microservices: With Microservices getting more and more complex, a service mesh becomes indispensable. It makes sure that the communication between services is stable, fast and safe. In this track, you will learn how to implement a service mesh into your cloud native application and leverage the advantages of tools like Istio or Linkerd.
- Managed Services, Backend as a Service: Managed services can boost your productivity beyond all measure. In this track you will learn how to make use of them and how you can integrate them into your own cloud native systems.

Cool sessions you should check out!
Serverless functions (like AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, and Azure Functions) have the ability to scale almost infinitely to handle massive workload spikes. While this is a great solution for compute, it can be a MAJOR PROBLEM for other downstream resources like RDBMS, third-party APIs, legacy systems, and even most managed services hosted by your cloud provider.
Whether you’re maxing out database connections, exceeding API quotas, or simply flooding a system with too many requests at once, serverless functions can DDoS your components and potentially take down your application. In this talk, we’ll discuss strategies and architectural patterns to create highly resilient serverless applications that can mitigate and alleviate pressure on “non-serverless” downstream systems during peak load times.
Knative is a Kubernetes-based platform that comes with a set of building blocks to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads. Knative consists of three major areas: Build, Serving and Eventing. The session gives you an introduction of the Knative Eventing component and walks you through an end-to-end demo, showing the lifecycle of event-driven workloads on Knative.
You’ll see integration of 3rd party events, from systems like Apache Kafka, and how your application can be hooked up to a firehose and connect your service to process incoming events, leveraging built-in Knative features to provide request driven compute, so that services can autoscale, including down to 0, depending on the actual throughput. If you are interested in learning about event-driven serverless developer experience on Kubernetes, this session is for you!
Why does it have to be Serverless versus Microservices? Couldn’t it be rather Microservices with Serverless? Based on some of the well-accepted principles of Microservices we can use Serverless architectures and technologies to build highly focused Microservices – which we might call Nanoservices.
We can’t wait to see you in Berlin!
