App modernization is all about taking on-prem apps, getting them containerized, running on VMs, perhaps orchestrating with Kubernetes, and eventually into the cloud. Once you're far enough down this path, you'll come across "serverless." What exactly *is* serverless? It's one of the fastest growing segments in cloud, allowing developers to focus on what they're building instead of what it runs on. In this session, we'll review cloud computing service levels then look specifically at serverless *compute* platforms. Whether it's web apps, functions / microservices, mobile backends, containers, or a customized business automation & extension platform, Google Cloud has a tool for your needs.
