APIs and microservices are how we build modern web applications and serverless technologies make this easy. This session will show you how serverless applications are built and how you can leverage your PHP skills to build APIs of all shapes and sizes. We will cover how to use your current knowledge to build applications in PHP within Apache OpenWhisk or AWS Lambda, leveraging the API Gateway to build robust APIs quickly and easily. By the end of the session, you'll be well placed to design and build your own microservices that take full advantage of the power of serverless technologies.

This was an excellent explanation of how serverless works and how to implement it. Thank you for including the section on AWS too!

Nice talk. Liked the references mentioned.

Super informative, I had no idea OpenWhisk nor the IBM cloud existed, and I never really looked into AWS Lambda “layers” after they announced it.

Also, I love light-on-dark colors in general, but especially on projectors.

The one thing I would try to change (it has its own problems) would be to add text to identify the textless logos. I feel like I missed a name or two.

Nice explanation on how serverless PHP works. Very informative.

Rob's session was awesome. I enjoyed every bit of it. I have been working with some of the same techs that he mentioned in his session so it made it all the time interesting for me. Thanks, Rob!

Another great talk from Rob. Thank you for including AWS that was such a great help.

This was a very interesting talk about a subject that was well beyond my experience and familiarity. Glad I attended, as it opened up my eyes (and mind) to what people are doing with PHP and open-source tools. The talk was well organized and well paced. Thank you for sharing your experience on this topic with the community Rob, and letting us know that this is something to pay attention to in our development work.

This was one of the standout talks: a confident and breezy, yet substantive introduction to serverless cloud computing with PHP. Staying carefully framework-agnostic, Rob used detailed code examples to demystify serverless in a way that made it feel approachable to me for the first time. More than that, he made a great point that PHP is better positioned to take advantage of serverless than other languages, because PHP developers are already used to sharing no state between requests. His treatment of the (very promising) "Serverless Framework" was a little brief; clearly it contains more options than could be covered at this length. Still a great talk. Thanks!

Great explanations and helpful to show actual code to make the concepts feel more real and understandable. I went in knowing only a little of serverless architectures and came out eager to start trying it out.
