A bright 2019 for OpenFaaS - project & community updates
This talk by the project lead covers the highlights and growth of the OpenFaaS project & community from the past 12 months, then focuses on what is to come in 2019.

It has been a year of growing traction with the number of contributors increasing 400%, dozens of new end-users solving real problems with OpenFaaS in production, a milestone of 16k GitHub stars, new ecosystem partners and a second Bossie Award from InfoWorld.com.

Key features that shipped include: the template store, scale-to-zero, stateless microservices, read-only functions and an SDK to support any event source. A managed multi-user platform called OpenFaaS Cloud was released and can be run on-premises or on any cloud as a SaaS connected directly to GitLab or GitHub.

2019 is focused on continuing this growth and preparing for 1.0. The upcoming milestone release will include more features for running OpenFaaS in production, improve the developer experience and make the project even more robust.

CNCF Serverless WG: What a ride so far!
About two years ago the CNCF formed the Serverless WG to initially explore this relatively new technology that seemed to be really gathering a lot of interest from the community, and to produce a set of recommendations for what the CNCF should do to help it’s success. Since then the WG has expanded its mission well beyond just educating the community, and has taken an active role in trying to address some of the pain-points our users are experiencing - mainly around interoperability. In this session we’ll explore the history of the WG, what we’re currently doing and where our next potential work items might lead us.

Kubernetes and AWS Lambda can play nicely together with OpenFaaS
Vendor lock-in can be a worry for many engineers . A new innovative approach, will for the first time, allow open-source serverless to run on AWS Lambda or Kubernetes using the same deployment artefact, packaged using the tools we love: containers.

OpenFaaS is an open-source function as a service (FaaS) platform on the [CNCF serverless landscape](https://landscape.cncf.io/format=serverless).

With OpenFaaS you can package anything as a serverless function and deploy to Kubernetes using containers. Due to UNIX-like primitives in the core architecture, it was possible to extend the system to run functions on both Kubernetes and AWS Lambda depending on user preference. The core components of OpenFaaS still run on Kubernetes but the functions are deployed and invoked on AWS Lambda
