On Wednesday 27th July, Trust In Soda hosted another EXTREMELY successful event at the ACE Hotel in Shoreditch.

As those attending grabbed a complimentary drink, a handful of nibbles and took to their seats the speakers began discussing the future of serverless architecture.

YAN CUI - @theburningmonk from YUBL, AHMED NUAMAN - @ahmednuaman from SCOUT and HASSY VELDSTRA - @hveldstra from ARTILLERY.IO not only gave us an intellectual and insightful look into how they’re using serverless architecture but more importantly how it is benefiting and evolving the companies they work for. The profitability of using serverless computing became obvious as each speaker reinstated the freedom accessed by introducing the likes of LAMBDA into their computing and therefore not having to worry about the burden of infrastructure.
In fact, there were quite a few clear benefits of entering a future of serverless computing:
• Automatic scaling.
• It actually prefers coders to think functionally (YAY!)
• It is dynamic.
• No single bottleneck.
• Low cost (mostly).
• Super low touch.
• The tech is simple (Java, SQL, Node.js etc.…).

SODA SOCIAL’s are really interesting events not only because of the outstanding speakers they invite but because of the buzz that is created when a room full of techies begin discussing what they are passionate about. The ‘question and answers’ section always reveals the extent of brainpower and understanding within the room, as the audience probe deeper and advance the discussion it is clear that everyone is learning from each other - which reinstates the sense of community that the event creates. By the end of the night and after the speakers had finished the room was still full to brim of both professional techs and tech enthusiasts engaging in stimulating conversation and valuable observations. Which no doubt will result in some exciting developments!
And that is why the SODA SOCIAL’s are not only a fantastic set-up but they’re extremely important as they encourage and create a place in which minds collide and ideas are founded (not forgetting that the cupcakes are simply delicious)!
