JAM Stack with Phil Hawksworth
Engineers can build applications faster by using tools that abstract away infrastructure. Major cloud providers offer this tooling in the form of functions-as-a-service, as well as managed services such as Google BigQuery or Azure Container Instances.
The term “serverless” refers to these functions-as-a-service and the managed services–because when you use these tools, you are not making calls to specific servers–you are making calls to APIs that abstract away the servers from you, while guaranteeing uptime and reliability. In previous shows we have covered Heroku, Firebase, serverless functions, serverless event driven application development, and a few startups that are built almost entirely on serverless infrastructure.
We recently launched a new podcast: Fintech Daily! Fintech Daily is about payments, cryptocurrencies, trading, and the intersection between finance and technology. You can find it on fintechdaily.co or Apple and Google podcasts. We are looking for other hosts who want to participate. If you are interested in becoming a host, send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
