Services in your Clusters are Way Costlier than they Appear!! - Yash Bhatnagar & Naina Verma, VMware
A common myth in containerized infrastructures is that the containers running the "micro"-services are so small that just like their name, they only have a "micro" effect with any resource optimization effort, and are quite often considered not worth the time and effort.

Even though orchestrators might have options to support serverless functions in the form of k8s jobs, etc. these constructs remain underutilized, more so because of a lack of such mathematical proof and analysis

In this talk, the speakers will be showcasing a case study about how for just a single service, using ingredients like:
1 A cursory look at resource utilization values
2 High school statistics
3 Time series analysis

they were able to cook-up a quick revamp recipe into serverless functions & saved a lot ( Hint: around 4 digits) on their monthly infra costs and surprisingly, improving the peak load performance of several other unrelated services!

Interested in finding the actual numbers? See you at the talk!

Chaos Engineering in a Serverless World - Divya Mohan, HSBC
What is Chaos engineering? What are the marked benefits of incorporating Chaos engineering in a Serverless framework? Chaos engineering is the newest buzzword in town! While Serverless computing is taking the whole world by storm, learn how incorporating chaos engineering in a Serverless world is helping deliver better customer experience by improving reliability and observability with real life examples and use cases. No prior experience with Chaos engineering or Serverless necessary.

Meet faasd. Look Ma’ No Kubernetes! - Alex Ellis, OpenFaaS Ltd
As excellent as Kubernetes is, the traction of tools like k3s has shown us that scaling down is just as important as scaling up. Meet faasd - a FaaS framework that uses battle-tested CNCF projects (containerd & CNI) and the OpenFaaS ecosystem to provide an alternative to FaaS on Kubernetes

With faasd, a function can cold-start in as little as 0.14s without resorting to stateful optimizations such as stateful containers that are injected with code. You can build, ship, and run containers built for both OpenFaaS and Knative. faasd was designed with portability in mind and runs on both Intel and ARM architecture

The use-case being explored for faasd is for a bundled VM appliances and for edge devices. Imagine a computer with direct access to cryptographic hardware, fast flash storage for CDN, or a TPU for machine-learning inference.

Through a live demo you’ll see an on-ramp into the CNCF ecosystem for teams who want to avoid lock-in, and aren’t quite ready for “full Kubernetes”

Finding Managed Services in a Serverless World with Crossplane and OpenFaaS - Daniel Mangum, Upbound
While deploying serverless functions on Kubernetes has become painless through projects like OpenFaaS, provisioning managed services to be consumed by those functions remains a disparate process. However, other OSS projects like Crossplane allow developers to start consuming managed services interchangeably without lock-in.

Crossplane allows you to provision managed services as Kubernetes-native objects, then propagates connection information for the service in the form of a Secret. OpenFaaS exposes the ability to inject connection information into a function using a Secret. When used together, your entire stack can be deployed in a single, consistent workflow using automated pipelines and GitOps best practices.

This presentation will demonstrate setting up a Kubernetes cluster with OpenFaaS and Crossplane installed, then provisioning portable functions and managed services, all from a GitHub repository.

Application Autoscaling Made Easy With Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA) - Tom Kerkhove, Codit
Deploying applications to Kubernetes is one thing, but how do you scale them? Horizontal Pod Autoscalers to the rescue! But when you want to scale on external providers such as Kafka, Redis or another dependency it is not a walk in the park anymore.

Enter Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA) which allows you to take your existing apps and easily configure how it should scale without having to worry about the magic! Using Kafka, Azure, AWS, GCP, Prometheus, etc? Don't worry, we've got your back!

Join this talk to learn what KEDA is, how simple it is to get started and why it makes application autoscaling so easy!
