In May 2016 we ran the first ever conference on serverless technologies and architectures in Brooklyn, NY. The conference was a huge success thanks to our passionate attendees, speakers, and sponsors.
A venerable who’s who of cloud attended the conference: Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM, Serverless Inc, PubNub, and more. There were representatives and speakers from Firebase and Auth0, Capital One and Nordstrom, and more fantastic organisations. We had speakers including Patrick Debois, Charity Majors, Dr. Donald Ferguson, Tim Wagner, Chris Anderson, Joe Emison, Austen Collins, Noelle LaCharite, Ben Kehoe, Erica Windisch, Lars Trieloff, Florian Motlik, David Pollak, Marcia Villalba, Paul Johnston, Andreas Nauerz, Rob Gruhl, Leo Anthias, Kapil Thangavelu, James Governor, Erik Erikson, Sam Kroonenburg, and many, many others. A thank you to everyone who made this conference a success.
After running 4 ServerlessConfs (Conf’s?) in New York, Japan, England, and Texas we’re putting together another lineup of speakers, workshops, and activities so you can stay up-to-date on the ecosystem.
The serverless space is maturing rapidly, with new solutions and competitors appearing seemingly every week. More developers and companies are taking notice, and we are seeing organisations make major investments in this space. Last year there wasn’t a single Serverless Meetup in the world; today there are at least 15 including London, San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Santa Clara, Heidelberg, Oslo, Madrid, Milano, Bucharest, Berlin, Bangkok, Medellín, Sydney, and Auckland. It’s no surprise too, serverless technologies and architectures offer a disruptive approach to implementation and operations of software systems that is cheaper, more scalable, more powerful, and lots of fun.
You wouldn’t be reading this if we weren’t gearing up for another round – this time ServerlessConf is coming to Manhattan. This conference, just like the ones in NY, Tokyo, London, and Austin; will be dedicated to serverless technologies and architectures.
Serverlessconf will be held over 2 days on October 10-11
Workshops on serverless tech will run on October 9th
October 8th is an all-day hackathon to build serverless apps
Serverlessconf is for practitioners, enthusiasts, experts, and fans interested in serverless technologies (be it, Function-as-a-Service, Backend-as-a-Service, or serverless/cloud patterns & architectures). We will hear use case, discuss architectures, learn about new products and features, and debate whether to rename serverless to Jeff.
Finally, if you want to sponsor our conference — get in touch. We’d love to work with you to make this conference an event to remember and grow the serverless community further.
We hope to see you at Serverlessconf NYC 2017!
