Despite whatever terminology the larger development industry settles on, serverless environments are ultimately event-driven systems. These architectures are still going to ultimately involve servers and cloud management for many. In this episode of The New Stack Makers, we spoke to Jason McGee, VP and CTO of IBM Cloud Platform, at ServerlessConf Austin. We talked about the focus for many at ServerlessConf on assessing, implementing, and monitoring event-driven architectures. We learned about how IBM Bluemix makes the most of OpenWhisk’s capabilities, and how serverless compares to and builds upon developer application models such as those around Docker and containers.
