The Serverless Company

Serverless technologies have had a tremendous impact on our software architecture and devops practices, but what about the rest of the organization?

In this presentation you will hear the story of a company that started in 2015 as a remote-first, pure-serverless organization. Without any servers or facilities to manage, dev ops _is_ the company’s infrastructure.

Learn how internal and external technology choices can support a company’s core values, and how lean systems help maintain resiliency (even during a global pandemic).

Whether you run (or want to start) your own business, or need to convince management in your company to adopt serverless, you’ll walk away with information that will help you move to the next level.
