The NYC IBM Bluemix Meetup is excited to partner with the Serverless NYC meetupand Adobe to host a post-Serverlessconf event around the Apache OpenWhisk open source project. OpenWhisk is at the heart of Adobe's cloud efforts & IBM Cloud Functions.

Building data, message, & REST API driven apps with Apache OpenWhisk on IBM Cloud Functions
Learn why serverless architectures are attractive for many emerging cloud workloads, when you should consider Apache OpenWhisk for your next project, & see demos on how to deploy & manage these three common workloads on IBM Cloud Functions.

Libraries as a Service
Serverless emphasizes on reusability of a function as a deployable unit. Unlike a function, a library needs to be first embedded into a service, compiled with it, then deployed somewhere, before becoming consumable. Functions may incorporate libraries as well. But what if we could annotate libraries with enough metadata information to make them directly deployable in serverless environments ? It should make it easier for serverless based applications to reuse the code in this way. This talk is going to explore this option, taking existing libraries, & deploying them in multiple serverless solutions, in order to observe the results, while looking at the pros & cons of such an approach.
