Foundations Friday Forum

The authors of Fundamentals of Software Architecture, Mark Richards and Neal Ford, often answer questions and generally network with other architects at in-person events, which are sadly on hold at the moment. Thus, to provide another benefit to the existing and growing software architecture community, we’re hosting Foundations Fridays Forum, a free 30 minute topic-based question and answer session each month on the last Friday of the month. We set the topic; you come armed with questions. Note that these forums are not recorded. Keep an eye on this space for upcoming dates and topics.

Please spread the word–and we hope to see you in the Forum on Friday! We’ll post topics and dates here on a regular basis. Seating is limited, so register early and sign in early to ensure a seat.

Topic: Serverless: Architecture Style or Deployment Strategy?
Serverless has become very popular in the past several years. However, there is a lot of confusion about what it is. Is it an architecture style, or just a deployment strategy? If it isn't an architecture style on its own, then what architecture styles are serverless? In this Q&A forum we discuss our views about Serverless and what it is (and isn't).
