From Mumbai to Hyderbad to Bangalore, from container orchestration to serverless computing, from IBM Container Service to IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk, from creating actions to extending Watson package actions using OpenWhisk Sequences, from Kubernetes to IBM Watson, and from from track owner to speaker, I thoroughly enjoyed presenting and interacting with developers at IBM DeveloperConnect. Based on requests from attendees, I am adding the presentations and videos that I created for this event.
Track 1: Kubernetes and IBM Bluemix
Title: Love K8s?? Now, manage your containers with it on IBM Bluemix Container Service
Earlier this year, IBM announced the integration of advanced container orchestration of Kubernetes into the IBM Bluemix Container Service. You can create your first Kubernetes cluster within minutes and flexibly manage dedicated cluster resources for both stateless (microservice) applications and stateful workloads.
Track 2: Going Serverless
Title: Look Ma, No Server! Go Serverless with IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk
OpenWhisk is an event-driven compute platform also referred to as Serverless computing or as Function as a Service (FaaS) that runs code in response to events or direct invocations.
This 3-part series of posts helps you understand the in-depth features of Serverless Computing via OpenWhisk. OpenWhisk offers an easy way to chain services where an output of first action acts as an input to the second action and so on in a sequence.
OpenWhisk achieves the chaining of services via sequences on Bluemix. By the end of Part 3, You will be chaining Watson services and exposing the sequence as an REST API via OpenWhisk API Gateway.
