Transforming Careers and Communities with Serverless

Two women from non-traditional backgrounds are using serverless to help a community while aligning their personal goals with their business and career goals. In this session, learn how serverless has transformed their careers, and why they’re developing a language translation application to enable new serverless practitioners from around the world more easily access resources and training that will further their education. The session will include a build walk-through for the application on Stackery, as well as inspirational stories about the power of serverless for building a business and making an impact.
