Serverless systems are becoming mainstream and are an exciting addition to your dev toolbox. Rob will help us understand what serverless is & how it improves software development as we concentrate solely on our code without worrying about infrastructure concerns. PHP is the language of the web and with native support in OpenWhisk and Azure functions, this true for serverless too. This session will introduce you to serverless PHP and show you how to easily build application with this up and coming technology.
