If you haven’t been keeping up with OpenFaaS, it’s one of the more exciting projects in the emerging serverless space. It basically uses Docker to make Functions simple. Now the team has released OpenFaaS Cloud, designed to make it easier for developers (as opposed to DevOps engineers) to build functions in a familiar workflow.
I like my functions like I like my Chinese takeout: in containers. OpenFaaS provides an open-source framework to make this an easy process. Creator Alex Ellis recently showed how to run it on a Raspberry Pi cluster with Kubernetes, as well as showed off some interesting demos at DockerCon EU 17.
