    “At its core, the Serverless Days movement focuses on the reality of serverless based solutions rather than the hype surrounding it.  It’s about fostering a community locally and helping all of us learn from each other as we embrace a new way of building applications.”

    He continued: “The speaker panel in made up of global serverless advocates who have been invited to speak and local software engineers who submitted papers to the organising committee.  We’re really excited to be providing a platform for serverless advocates to share, collaborate and learn from eachother and the full speaker panel line-up is now live on our website.”
