In this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, we sit down with Alex Ellis, creator of OpenFaaS, to discuss the latest update to his open source serverless platform, what this new concept "Serverless 2.0" means, and the difficulties of supporting an open source project.
Ellis created OpenFaaS a few years back after wanting to extend the functionality offered by Amazon Web Services' function-as-a-service Lambda to any containerized computing environment, a feature that has since been emulated by other serverless offerings.
