    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 oauth.net. 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 http://alannarisse.com

    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.
