    Announcing first 2 "Serverless-Boston" meet-ups

    Greetings, Geeks!

    My longtime friend Wayne Scarano and I co-founded the "Serverless-Boston" meet-up, to educate ourselves (and others) about microservices, function-oriented ("serverless") architectures on public cloud infrastructures, and other related topics.

    Info here:

    We have 2 meetings scheduled so far. The kickoff is tomorrow (see meetup link for location and agenda), and the next one will be December 7, both in Boston (Fort Point area, thanks to WeWork for providing the space!)

    From the agenda for tomorrow's meeting:
    Serverless is a misnomer because there are servers. We will discuss what Serverless is, how it is part of an evolving abstraction, and what's on the horizon - InterCloud. It's important to have a shared understanding of what Serverless is, so we offer a draft baseline definition as a reference point for future discussions.

    I will be showing an IoT demo: AWS button sending MQTT messages to a Lambda function, which then uses DynamoDb to record hits and SNS to send email. Should be fun.

    Hope to see you there.

    Geek ya later!
