PDX Serverless Meetup: Serverless Bot Development on Azure
Simple (New Office)


Serverless Bot Development on AzureChatbots are becoming ubiquitous. From customer service to personal assistance chatbots have come to the forefront because of the natural feel of conversational interfaces backed by AI, big data, and ML.

In this Meetup we’ll discuss how to put all of these elements together in a serverless way using Azure functions, the bot framework, and AI through cognitive services.

Real-world Serverless security with FaunaDB and Amazon API Gateway
Simple (New Office)

Current popular cloud databases aren't native to serverless—you have to pay for capacity you don’t use. Additionally, they often lack support for joins, indexes, authentication, and other capabilities necessary to build a rich application.

See how FaunaDB's data and operations model fits serverless applications like a glove. The core of the talk is a live code session showing an app using the framework to run real world queries in FaunaDB. If you haven't coded with the Serverless framework before you'll be comfortable picking it up after this.

June PDX Serverless Meetup
Stackery HQ

The Portland Serverless Meetup is back! New hosts, new location, same great group.

Interested in speaking at a future event? Message us and let us know! We'd love to have you.

This month we'll have two talks:

Self-healing serverless applications

Serverless applications increasingly involve distributed systems where errors and bottlenecks can have significant downstream impact. This can be compounded by the ephemeral nature of FaaS offerings in which errors can be difficult to diagnose retroactively. In this session we'll discuss instrumentation and "self-healing" architectural patterns that will improve resiliency of your application and drive improved observability and performance.

You get serverless. Your team gets serverless. But does your organization get serverless?

You know a serverless architecture is the right solution for a project, but your VP of Engineering is pushing back. They are probably doing this because it’s not obvious how a serverless architecture will fit into the organization’s existing development, testing, and release processes. Their intuition that new techniques are needed to effectively maintain and extend serverless architectures is spot-on. But they can be convinced serverless is the right approach if you show them successful patterns.

Fireside Chat with Kelsey Hightower

Join us as we kick off OSCON with this fireside chat community event (open to all, no need to be an OSCON attendee!) with Kelsey Hightower and Nate Taggart.

Nate and Kelsey will be exploring the impact, trends, and future of serverless from the perspective of both cloud providers and the developer community. This is an event you won't want to miss!

Serverless Architecture Meetup
Stackery HQ

This month we will have two talks:

"What the Heck is OAuth?"

The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework has become the industry standard in providing secure access to web APIs. OAuth allows users to grant external applications access to their data, such as profile data, photos, and email, without compromising security. However, OAuth can be intimidating when first starting out. In this talk, Aaron Parecki will break down the various OAuth workflows and provide a simplified overview of the framework, highlighting a few typical use cases for web apps, mobile apps and browserless devices.

Aaron Parecki is a developer advocate at Okta, and maintains He's the co-founder of IndieWebCamp, a yearly unconference focusing on data ownership and online identity, and is the editor of the W3C Webmention and Micropub specifications.

Alanna Risse will show us how she built a working 'bananaphone' with google cloud voice.

Alanna Risse is a artist, web developer, and full stack mentor at Thinkful. Her piece “Bananaphone” was included in a group show at PNCA this summer. This interactive piece features a Google AIY Voice/Rasperry Pi Zero encased in an oversized paper maché bananaphone. Her website is

Serverless Architecture Meetup

This month Chuck Jewell from Sightbox will be sharing how Sightbox is solving legacy app and database transitions using the strangler pattern and GraphQL.

Legacy app strangulation with GraphQL on AWS AppSync

Database concepts like linearizability and serializability sound abstract, but they can have real-world consequences. Chris Fauna from Fauna DM will give us a look at consistency in the real world, and how flaws can impact your applications. We’ll take a tour of FaunaDB’s globally consistent transaction pipeline and compare it to the alternative approach taken by Google Spanner.
