Serverless Computing London Call for Papers is open NOW

Functions as a conference...

Serverless Computing London returns in November, and we want you to be there, on stage.

Last year Situation Publishing, the people behind The Register and DevClass, together with Heise Medien, launched Serverless Computing London, the first three day event to focus on the full range of serverless platforms and tools, and how they can change enterprise computing.

This year’s conference takes place from November 6 to 8 at the QE II Conference Centre in Central London, slap bang in the heart of the biggest tech community in Europe.

Once again, we are looking for speakers and workshop instructors who are leading the charge in Serverless, by developing and delivering the key building blocks and methodologies, and putting the technology into production in real world organisations.

This is a platform agnostic conference, so whether you’re building applications on Lambda, Azure Functions, Google Functions or OpenFaaS, or all of the above, we’d love to hear how you’re getting along.

And it doesn’t matter whether you’re the architect drawing up the grand plan, or the engineer implementing it and making it work. What’s important is that you’ve got practical knowledge and experience you can share with our attendees.

You can see the full breakdown of the technologies we’re interested in, and make your proposal on the Serverless website here. You can also see videos of last year’s conference. We look forward to hearing from you. ®

  • Japan picks AWS and Google for first gov cloud push

    Local players passed over for Digital Agency’s first project

    Japan's Digital Agency has picked Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud for its first big reform push.

    The Agency started operations in September 2021, years after efforts like the UK's Government Digital Service (GDS) or Australia's Digital Transformation Agency (DTA). The body was a signature reform initiated by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, who spent his year-long stint in the top job trying to curb Japan's reliance on paper documents, manual processes, and faxes. Japan's many government agencies also operated their websites independently of each other, most with their own design and interface.

    The new Agency therefore has a remit to "cut across all ministries" and "provide services that are driven not toward ministries, agency, laws, or systems, but toward users and to improve user-experience".

  • Singaporean minister touts internet 'kill switch' that finds kids reading net nasties and cuts 'em off ASAP

    Fancies a real-time crowdsourced content rating scheme too

    A Minister in the Singapore government has suggested the creation of an internet kill switch that would prevent minors from reading questionable material online – perhaps using ratings of content created in real time by crowdsourced contributors.

    "The post-COVID world will bring new challenges globally, including to us in the security arena," said Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen at a Tuesday ceremony to award the city-state's 2021 Defense Technology Prize.

    "For operations, the SAF (Singapore Armed Force) has to expand its capabilities in the digital domain. Whether for administrative or operational purposes, I think that we will need to leverage technology to the maximum," he declared.

  • China Telecom booted out of USA as Feds worry it could disrupt or spy on local networks

    FCC urges more action against Huawei and DJI, too

    The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has terminated China Telecom's authority to provide communications services in the USA.

    In its announcement of the termination, the government agency explained the decision is necessary because the national security environment has changed in the years since 2002. That was when China Telecom was first allowed to operate in the USA.

    The FCC now believes – partly based on classified advice from national security agencies – that China Telecom can "access, store, disrupt, and/or misroute US communications, which in turn allow them to engage in espionage and other harmful activities against the United States." And because China Telecom is state-controlled, China's government can compel the carrier to act as it sees fit, without judicial review or oversight.
