Serverless is the most clickbaity title for an actually interesting thing. Despite the name, serverless does not mean you’re not using a server, rather, the promise of serverless is to no longer have to babysit a server. Scaling is done for you, you’re billed only for what you use. In this session, Sarah will cover some key use cases for these functions within a Vue.js application: she’ll accept payments with stripe, gather geolocation data from Google Maps, and more!
