Serverless gives way to Storytelling
Serverless is a step in the right direction, yet over 90% of the industry is stuck in the monolith. Steve Peak, decade long developer and founder of Asyncy and Codecov, presents a new way of thinking about development called Application Storytelling. Using a top-level natural programming language developers are able to build serverless applications that combine all programming language into one app. Yes, everything can be string together in a serverless way.

The future of application development is Storytelling. Uniting developers to build applications using serverless functions and microservices in a monolith.

Build Scalable APIs using GraphQL and Serverless
Current trends in software architecture have been evolving towards a more loosely coupled more granular design. The latest development on that front in the past couple of years has been the advent of Serverless which allows you to run applications in very cost effective ephemeral services. This is why it is important to have a proper gateway for your API that is able to route all your requests to the designated endpoint.
GraphQL stands out in that respect as being a mature open sourced standard. We will first have a look at how we set up our own GraphQL server locally, then we will explore the Query language and schema definitions it provides which allows you essentially query your mesh of services from a single point of entry. The beauty of that is it will notify you early if any of your endpoints is misbehaving or the schemas are out of date by erring out.

New Serverless Uses: Maximizing GPU Utilization and Performance
GPUs are useful resources for compute-intensive and highly parallelizable operations tasks such as streaming and parallel computing. However, inefficient resource management generates heavy expenses. Yaron Haviv will explain how to fragments applications to microservices and scale GPUs in and out with serverless for maximum resource efficiency. Instead of wasting costs on every data scientist having his own GPU, 10 data scientists can share 3-4 GPUs and use them as needed. He will demonstrate how to improve GPU utilization and sharing, resulting in almost four times faster application performance when compared to the use of GPUs within monolithic architectures. Participants will learn how serverless platforms can fifty times faster when offering GPU support.

Immature to Secure: Do's and Don'ts of Serverless Security
Serverless is still pretty new, and security is one of the top concerns preventing people from adopting serverless. In this talk, we will talk about how the attack surface is changing with serverless. We will talk about what NOT to do and what are some of the best practices in securing your serverless apps.

We will also touch upon how to secure a hybrid container-serverless environment where part of your services are running as containers and others are serverless.

At the end of the session, you will have a checklist you can go back to, to make sure you have done all the things to secure your serverless deployment.
