Functionia: An event-driven adventure in the serverless metaverse with OpenShift Serverless

Jump to section

For the past 5 years, we have witnessed an increasing pace in technology, especially in the development sector. Domain-driven design methodologies led to microservices architectures and a DevOps approach led to different build and deployment models. Developers found themselves needing to know about infrastructure and understand how economical resource usage is crucial.

Red Hat® OpenShift® Serverless allows developers to focus on writing code and determining where it needs to run without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.

OpenShift Serverless includes capabilities for building, deploying, and running event-driven applications that start based on an event trigger, scale up resources as needed, then scale to zero after a resource burst. It is based on Knative, and can run anywhere Red Hat OpenShift is installed.

In this Red Hat Training webinar, you’ll find out how to create serverless scale-to-zero applications with Quarkus and Node.js and how to run serverless workloads with event-driven architecture using OpenShift Serverless.

In the technical demonstration of a newly built metaverse, Functionia, we will explore how to build a more economical mechanism for the "miner clans" who do mine processing with the "bitmines."

In the demo, we’ll:

  • Explore Functionia and analyze the current, less economical bitmining architecture
  • Meet with residents from the core clan and show them OSRV-4, our avatar robot friend, who will have serverless solutions regarding the bitmining process
  • Explore the bitmining Kafka source, and Knative sink services
  • Practice serverless, efficient bitmining using OpenShift Serverless

Are you ready to visit Functionia to learn about OpenShift Serverless?

This Red Hat Training webinar will cover:

  • Traditional long-running application architecture and its drawbacks
  • OpenShift Serverless Serving
  • OpenShift Serverless Eventing and how it solves problems by:
    • Reducing the coupling between services
    • Providing autoscale and scale-to-zero capabilities to the applications
  • Building blocks for eventing like source, channel, subscription, sink, and more
  • CloudEvents usage in an OpenShift Serverless Eventing architecture

Live event date: Thursday, March 24, 2022 | 10 a.m. ET

On-demand event: Available for one year afterward.
