I can hear you think “Part 2?! So there actually is a part 1?” 😱 The answer to that is, yes, there most definitely is a part 1 (but you can safely ignore that 😅). In that part I went over deploying Flogo apps that you built with the Flogo Web UI using the Serverless Framework. Now, with the Go API that we added to Flogo, you can mix triggers and activities from Flogo (and the awesome community) with your regular Go code and… deploy using the Serverless Framework
I got a ton of great feedback on my post Securely Chatting Microservices, so I decided to create a video out of it and start a new video series called Flynn in Flight!
Building microservices is awesome, having them talk to each other is even more awesome! But in today’s world, you can’t be too careful when it comes to sending sensitive data across the wire. Last week I was at PubNub for a Meetup where, together with Jordan Schuetz and Nicholas Grenié, we spoke about cool things you can do with PubNub.
Building multi-platform event-driven microservices and functions shouldn’t drive you mad, and if so, there should be a method to your madness! In this short webinar hosted by DZone, learn to build event-driven microservices and functions using Project Flogo.
“Serverless” allows developers to focus on writing their code, and a cloud provider, like AWS, takes care of all the other bits. Building serverless apps means the developer doesn’t have to worry about server management, scaling, or high availability, a convenience that usually comes with the added benefit of lower operational cost. We’ll be showing how to use the Project Flogo lightweight integration engine and open source framework to deploy functions to AWS Lambda using SAM.
Let’s talk (to) bots! In this case I’m not talking about the awesome autobots, that save the world from Megatron, but Slack bots that help people collaborate and introduce a little fun! Several weeks ago Slack published an article about building the modern collaboration hub and how that hub makes sure that people can interact with each other and their data.
As the AI-fueled, edge-exposed, blockchain-driven, and streaming analytics-enabled use cases of the future move closer into view, new technologies are needed to make the vision real. Unique and complex workloads accompany the use cases of the future, but luckily, the enabling technologies to compute those workloads have already arrived.
I get to work with serverless microservices on a daily basis, those are services I use myself and ones I help our customers build to take advantage of the benefits that serverless brings you. With many services needing to be deployed and continuous updates, I found myself doing the same thing over and over.
Today I spoke at a Meetup group to discuss the Go Programming Language. Together with an awesome colleague (Miguel Torres) we spoke about Project Flogo and the lessons we learned building it. Click on the link to check out the talk on YouTube.
This year I wasn’t able to attend re:Invent, but I did want to do something nice in between the live streams and specifically around Serverless compute and AWS Lambda. Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. You pay only for the compute time you consume - there is no charge when your code is not running.
