App modernization includes topics such as containerizing on-prem apps, getting apps running on VMs, 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 the cloud, allowing developers to focus on what they're building instead of what it runs on.
This session introduces Google Cloud's serverless compute platforms. Whether it's web apps, functions/microservices, mobile backends, event-driven workloads, or containerized apps, these tools can meet your needs. The featured sample app demonstrates how to use Google Cloud AI/ML APIs, where, as long as you can call an API, you can leverage the power of machine learning. Whether you're a developer, consultant, engineer, DevOps/IT, analyst or scientist, you'll learn how to run code serverlessly and become part of the next-generation cloud-ready workforce.
After the session, you can explore serverless further on Google Cloud Skills Boost!
