Why serverless never really worked for me until now! #
GDG Cloud Copenhagen, Copenhagen - 30. September 2019
In this presentation I want to talk about how I have tried serverless many times but always had issues. I could see the potential but it was always difficult to see it end to end, and when you are busy to often end up defaulting to what you already know. Now Google has launched Cloud Run and it looks to be the perfect solution, but does such a solution exist? Come and hear how I approach serverless with Cloud Run, Cloud Build, Berglas, Cloud KMS and bazel.build

Why is my build times so long? #
