We accidentally created a Serverless Application

As a developer advocate, one of the largest challenges we have is teach people how to use our products. To do this is that we have to create workshops and disposable environments so our students can get their hands dirty. As IBM employees we use the IBM cloud, but it is designed for long-term production usage, not the ephemeral infrastructures that a workshop would require. We have previously created some systems around it to provide different ways of building up these systems, but in this latest iteration, we discovered we created a full serverless stack (by accident).

    JJ works as a Developer Advocate representing the IBM Cloud all over the world. He mainly focuses on the IBM Kubernetes Service and OpenShift trying to make companies and users have a successful onboarding to the Cloud Native ecosystem. He has also been known in the DevOps tooling ecosystem and generalized Linux communities. If he is not building automation to make his work streamlined, he is building the groundwork to do just that. He lives and grew up in Austin, Texas. A father and husband, trying to learn to balance his natural nerdiness with family life. He enjoys a good strong dark ale, hoppy IPA, some team building Artemis, and epic Gloomhaven campaigning. He has recently dove headfirst into Fedora since IBM buying Red Hat, but still secretly wants FreeBSD everywhere. He is always trying to become a better web technology developer, though normally just uses bash to get the job done.
