Abstract

Serverless computing is growing in popularity as it allows developers to move faster by focusing on business-critical software without worrying about underlying infrastructure or toolchains, as well as saving money on cloud computing costs by only running serverless functions and applications as they are needed. With this move from 24/7 computing to an on-demand, a la carte model of running software, it is important for businesses to have a workflow that is flexible and can easily be replicated on any public cloud.

In this demo, we will talk about and show how GitLab Serverless is leading the way towards easy Serverless solutions.
