About this Episode

On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Founder & Editor-in-Chief Alex Williams was live from ServerlessConf 2018. Williams sat down with Linda Nichols, Cloud Enablement Leader at Cloudreach, and Emily Young, Cloudreach Cloud Software Engineer to discuss not only ServerlssConf, but hiring practices, how companies utilise functions, and more.

Launching the discussion was a conversation surrounding the way in which Young has brought "server-full" technology into her home by purchasing 500 punchcards from Los Alamos National Laboratory, having an interest in vintage computing, mainframes, and servers. "It's really interesting being on both sides of it, watching the invention of computers, [...] where a computer took up an entire room and now we have these functions, we don't even worry about what the computer is. We just upload little punchcards to the cloud and get back output from AWS or Google Cloud."
