Pragmatism in the real world

Implementing Serverless PHPPresented at DPC Unconference, June 2017

Serverless applications have a number of benefits and JavaScript is the most common language to write serverless functions in. Why not PHP? In this talk, I will discuss how I implemented first class PHP support into the Apache OpenWhisk platform. I look at how OpenWhisk works, how the PHP support is implemented and then walk though an example PHP serverless Slack application.
