Serverless Programming with Fn Project

by Elton Stoneman

Fn is an open-source serverless platform powered by Docker. It runs on local machines, the data center, or the cloud, supports multiple languages, and lets you run any Docker container as a serverless function. This course gets you up and running with Fn.

What you'll learn

Serverless programming is an exciting new computing model, where you live entirely in the code. The big problem is cloud lock-in. Fn Project is different – it’s an open-source serverless framework which runs in containers on your local machine, in the data center, or in any cloud. In this course, Serverless Programming with Fn Project, you'll get up-and-running with Fn. First, you'll learn how to build functions in Go, Node.js, Java, and .NET Core. Then, you'll discover how serverless functions can be used to integrate systems or add functionality to existing systems. Finally, you'll explore how to make functions portable and run them in the cloud. When you’re finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of serverless to run functions in your own environment.
