Gives us the basics of the Iron.io technologies - How does it augment these platforms?
- Topic 3 - There seem to be lots of events-driven platforms / frameworks emerging. What are the core elements that developers and operators should be considering?
- Topic 4 - Iron.io has been doing this for quite a while. What are some of the application and design patterns that customers use the Iron.io platform to accomplish?
- Topic 5 - What are some of the business challenges that are solved with these events-driven architectures? How do you have a business-level conversation around “serverless”?
- Topic 6 - Where are the open source elements of Iron.io and which parts are commercial?
