Get started with Serverless 2.0 and the PLONK Stack

You’ve heard of LAMP, JAM, and MEAN, but what is the PLONK stack? And why should you be considering it for your Cloud Native Applications? How is Serverless 1.0 any different from its previous incarnations and how could it benefit you?

In this talk, Alex will introduce you to the PLONK stack which combines five of the most popular technologies from the Cloud Native Landscape to form a complete PaaS / FaaS solution on Kubernetes. These projects are all OSS and 4/5 are hosted by the CNCF including: Prometheus, Linkerd2, OpenFaaS, NATS, and Kubernetes.

You’ll learn how each project in the stack can be used and what kind of results you can expect when you combine them together as a complete platform in a live demo.

So come and find out what companies are using this stack and why you should be considering it too.
