Serverless Scala - Functions as SuperDuperMicroServices

Session Recording

About this Session

Serverless is all the rage but what does it mean for Scala developers? Can we take a plain ol' Scala function and run it on the cloud with infinite scalability? This talk will explore how to build and deploy serverless Scala and how to avoid startup overhead. We will use Google Cloud as a reference serverless implementation but the concepts are applicable with any provider.

Required Knowledge

Basic Scala.
