Containers vs. Serverless from a DevOps standpoint

The pros and cons of managing your own containers versus letting serverless do it for you - Explained with a simple Node.js app.

The goal of this talk is to show the differences between using containers and servereless as a way of serving applications. It will cover several key pain points and advantages of both technologies giving the listener valuable insight into when to use what, and for which purpose.

Two simple real-life examples will show how to deploy an app to a Kubernetes cluster and how to deploy the same app to a serverless environment which includes AWS Lambda and AWS API Gateway.
