About This Guided Project
You probably have heard Serverless Computing, Lambda, Kubernetes, Knative and other buzzwords thrown arround. By the time you complete this project in only 30 minutes you will not just learn how to play buzword bingo, you will actually deploy your first cloud native application in to a serverless infrastructure. You will see how your app will scale with user demand and how it can scale to zero so it costs you absolutely nothing when people are not actively using your app. You will understand how the new kind of serverless computing based on Kubernates and Knative is a real game changer for testing and experimenting with ideas and how invaluable it is when launching MVP (Minimum Viable Product).
In this project you will be using IBM Cloud Code Engine to deploy a simple app that creates thumbnails for photo images. The goal of the project is not to develop such app but to learn how to deploy any type of an app in to a modern serverless environment powered by Kubernetes and Knative, specifically, IBM Cloud Code Engine.
