Serverless is more than just a trend as more and more developers are choosing to use it. And over the past few years, a bunch of new tools and platforms have been introduced to support it. But why?  

Serverless promises an easy path forward for devs as you can simply deploy an app and never worry about capacity planning and database management. And yes, even the database can be serverless. 

In this session, we will walk through and demo and an end-to-end experience using Google Cloud Run and CockroachDB Serverless to demonstrate the value of this new approach. We will cover: 

  • Seven principles of serverless
  • An intro of Google Cloud Run
  • An intro of CockroachDB Serverless
  • Demo an end-to-end application
