Serverless talks: Project Fn && OpenFAAS

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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.

Eric Stoekl will present an Open Source CI/CD pipeline called OpenFaaS Cloud. OpenFaaS Cloud puts to use the principal of GitOps — you push to your GitHub repo and your serverless functions will be automatically built and deployed. This project runs as a set of OpenFaaS serverless functions, which are themselves Docker containers.


Chad Arimura is a 3x entrepreneur, most recently as co-founder and CEO of where he grew a multi-million dollar ARR business helping pioneer serverless computing including some of the earliest usages of the term “serverless” in 2010. Sorry about that. He sold the company in 2017 and joined Oracle.
He is now Vice President of Serverless at Oracle, currently leading The Fn Project, open source serverless FaaS platform and orchestration.

Eric Stoekl is a DevOps Engineer working at Motorola Solutions. In his free time, he is a core contributor to the OpenFaaS project and has been involved in the project since September 2017. He is the author of several tutorials and blog posts on OpenFaaS, including one on integrating OpenFaaS with AKS which has now been adapted into an official doc in the Microsoft docs for AKS. Eric has helped run a workshop on OpenFaaS at the Cisco Devnet conference and will be leading a workshop at OSCON in Portland
