Serverless Functions with the Open Source Fn Project

Hands-on Labs

cldops Cloud ,Containers & Infrastructure

In this hands-on lab you’ll be introduced to the open source Fn functions platform and learn how easy it is to write and deploy serverless functions using Java and other popular programming languages. We’ll walk through installing Fn on your laptop and how to define, build, and deploy functions. Once we’re done with the basics we’ll dive into using the Java FDK (Function Developer Kit) to accelerate function development and testing. We’ll also see how Fn’s packaging of functions as Docker containers provides support for advanced use cases not commonly possible with function platforms. When we’re done you’ll be ready to start using Fn to build highly responsive and scalable applications and services. Familiarity with Java and/or Go is recommended but not absolutely necessary for this lab. Note: Docker is a prerequisite for Fn so please come with Docker 17.10 or above installed. We’ll also have VirtualBox images with Docker available.
