Once again the OpenWhisk team will run a workshop to teach you the basic concepts behind serverless computing in general and OpenWhisk in particular, this time during the upcoming Serverless Conference taking place in Austin, TX, USA from April, 26th to April, 28th:

WORKSHOP #5: DEVELOP A SERVERLESS WEATHER BOT WITH OPENWHISK AND SERVERLESS FRAMEWORK

Dr. Andreas Nauerz: Technical Product Manager for IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk.
Michael Behrendt: Chief Architect for core platform of IBM Bluemix.

Learn the basics and strengths of IBM’s open-source serverless platform OpenWhisk. In this workshop you will learn how to develop serverless applications composed of loosely coupled microservice-like functions. You’ll explore OpenWhisk’s latest CLI and UI and become an OpenWhisk star by implementing a weather bot using IBM’s Weather Company Data service and Slack. You will also investigate how to use the recently added API Gateway and Web Actions capabilities. Finally, you will find out how to package and deploy your entire serverless application together using the Serverless Framework.
