FindCollabs Hackathon #1 has ended! Congrats to ARhythm, Kitspace, and Rivaly for winning 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ($4,000, $1000, and a set of SE Daily hoodies, respectively). The most valuable feedback award and the most helpful community member award both go to Vynce Montgomery, who will receive both the SE Daily Towel and the SE Daily Old School Bucket Hat.
Google’s options for running serverless workloads started with App Engine. App Engine is a way to deploy an application in a fully managed environment. Since the early days of App Engine, managed infrastructure has matured and become more granular.
We now have serverless databases, queueing systems, machine learning tools, and functions as a service. Developers can create fully managed, event-driven, highly scalable systems with less code and less operations.
Different cloud providers are taking different approaches to offering serverless runtimes. Google’s approach involves the open source Knative project and a hosted platform for running Knative workloads called Cloud Run.
Steren Giannini is a product manager at Google working on serverless tools. He joins the show to discuss Google’s serverless projects and the implementation details in building them.
