An Introduction to Webtask with Raymond Camden

GDG Atlanta
Wed, Oct 17, 2018, 7:00 PM (EDT)

About this event

Webtask is an "ultra-light" serverless framework focused on quickly putting up HTTP endpoints. You can prop up a serverless endpoint in minutes and even write the all of the code online with a web-based editor.

Webtask ( ) is a platform for creating serverless endpoints. With a simple CLI and (totally optional) online editor, you can quickly create serverless code to handle most nearly any task. Webtask is especially good for quick prototyping of functionality without needing to go through the bore of setting up a server. I'll walk people through the installation of the CLI, demonstrate how to create a webtask, and show off the online editor as well. I'll then show some demos of things that can be built in webtask while also discussing how it can be used in apps for user-based customization.
