An overview of its history, basic concepts, providers, frameworks, benefits and drawbacks.
Who has time to babysit servers? Not me. I have code to write, and customers to keep happy. I could use just a static site generator like Jekyll, but we need more. I have important Internal customers - the marketing department. People that expect a nice web GUI for their CMS. How am I going to make that happen with a static website?

We’ve created a simple internal platform that allows nanoservices to be uploaded, as code. It then allows a nanoservice to be executed on demand, via a RESTful API. There are no containers or servers dedicated to each nanoservice; instead, they all run on a shared platform. Which for us is a set of auto-scaling cloud instances.

Think about only using functions. No more managing servers. You only care about the code. Sounds rather cool. We as developers shouldn’t need to do the tedious work on the command line. Let the ops guys handle that. What do we even call this type of architecture? Only using functions? Small functions? Tiny services?

How we set up the globe by making use of a Serverless function that gets geolocation data from Google for all of our speaking locations. I'll also run through how we're going to use Vuex to store all of this data and output it to the table and globe, and how we'll use computed properties in Vue to make sorting through that table super performant.

Moving our startup to simple stateless serverless functions has a few hurdles, and AWS Lambda has a few quirks that requires some trial and error. But at the the end the journey, we managed to eliminate all of our EC2 instances and we’re now running all our code using AWS Lambda.

You can use things like localStorage or indexedDB to store data. But that data is only for the one person looking at your creation, it's not data stored in some permanent database that persists across time and sessions and all that. Need that? There are plenty of options. Also see options for getting/setting JSON data.

FaaS (functions as a service) is a paradigm shift in cloud – we've moved from real servers (physical, data centers) to fake servers (virtualization, containers, etc.) to uploading code and allowing a provider to run it in response to events. Something is quite different there. It is, of course, not possible without the previous innovations and strides, but a shift nonetheless.
