Intro to Fn – Bring your own Dockerfile

Serverless computing is one of the hottest trends in computing right now due to its simplicity and cost efficiency. Oracle recently open sourced a new project that enables developers to run their own Serverless infrastructure anywhere. The platform is container-native, enabling users to write functions in any programming language with excellent support for local development and testing. Fn even allows devs to “bring their own Dockerfile” such that ANY containerized code can be used as a function.

This talk will cover:

- How to use the functions platform with a demo

- Deploying functions in multiple languages

- How the platform is implemented including packaging, input and output via HTTP streams

- The nitty gritty on running short-lived Docker containers and hot functions to increase performance

- Scaling functions with the included smart load balancer

- Constructing higher-level orchestrations using Fn Flow
