Cloud Next '17 had many great announcements, and one of them was that Google Cloud Functions are now in Open Beta.
In a short overview presentation we were discussing what Google Cloud Functions are, how they are invocated and their pricing.
In addition to triggers like HTTP or Google Pub/Sub, there is also the possibility to link them to Firebase. In the second presentation László - a member of GDG Vienna but also organizer of Serverless Vienna meetup group - showcased using Cloud Functions together with Firebase, including a review of the developer experience.
And finally Nik Graf talked about the big picture in his presentation: what is serverless, what offerings exist from Amazon in comparison, and how does the "Serverless Framework" help to abstract the differences in the vendor-specific configuration.
