Serverless is only a name…we can call it Jeff!
By this sentence the JeffConf starts: it’s a great conference about Serverless which was born in London and this year it has been brought to Italy and I’ve had the chance to take part into it.
Another of the very interesting events I’m attending always more often lately.
People with really very interesting talks and messages went up on stage.
All the talks were about Serverless, a quite modern technology which is developing also in Italy.
Certainly, you are wondering what Serverless means.
It’s a network whose running isn’t focused on servers, as usually occurs, but it is placed among several users using the network itself, so the necessary work of running the network is done by the users themselves.
By this way it won’t be possible to close an entire network disconnecting only the servers, but the net will be active until people use it. Another great advantage of the Serverless is that the network users are not registered on the server machine, so, besides the major safety, we have a major privacy level.
There were two interventions at the JeffConf that particularly struck me.
Andrea Ulisse’s (Google) talk, which ranged from Serverless, telling also how people works at Google and about a particular company option allowing all employees to spend a month doing another job by choice inside Google.
A very interesting idea allowing to discover how people work in another part of the world and at another level, to open more and more the horizons and give much more creativity and open-mind to everyone, in any position.
Andrea told us that he decided to replace motherboards in the servers in Finland. He described how the breakdown’s analysis is done, how the several components are replaced and how he met people deeply unlike himself.
The other intervention that struck me was Luca Mezzalira’s one.
Luca created a company working only on Serverless technology with people spread all over the world.
His company dealt with sport news spreading showing that this technology can be used by thousand different ways and above all in every field. It’s interesting his explanation about how he runs the work of thousand and thousand of people contemporarily.
From this conference I bring home many new people met and the willing to adventure a bit into this new field, which was unknown to me until few days ago.
Do you know how I was able to take part into it? Easy! An email, a newsletter and the curiosity to go and discover new fields!
