Serverless APIs in Swift

by Rob Allen

Published November 6, 2017 in Technology

Serverless systems allow you to concentrate solely on your code and let the provider deal with infrastructure issues such as scaling and routing. Serverless is best known for responding to events, however it is also an excellent choice for APIs and microservices. In this session Rob will share with you how he has used Apache OpenWhisk to implement APIs using the Swift programming language.

You will learn how an API is built in Swift for deployment to Apache OpenWhisk. In order to do this, Rob will also cover key features of the Swift language and why it is good for server-side applications. You'll then learn how to write HTTP APIs frontend by the built-in API Gateway. By walking through this process of building an API, you'll be well placed to build your own serverless APIs.
