I am very happy to announce that my new book, "Developing Serverless Applications - A Practical Introduction with Apache OpenWhisk." I believe that may win the prize for the most "wordy" title of any book I've written.


The best part is the price - 100% free. All you need to do is hop over to a signup form, register, and you'll get a copy of the PDF. It's a short book aimed at getting you up and running with serverless and OpenWhisk and will cover the basics of action creating, sequences, and making APIs.

Here's the table of contents:

  • Introduction
  • OpenWhisk Basics
  • Working with Actions
  • Using OpenWhisk Actions
  • Building Sequences
  • Working with Packages
  • Using Triggers and Rules
  • Going Further with OpenWhisk

I hope this is helpful to folks. OpenWhisk was my introduction to serverless, and it's obviously my favorite so far (although I do plan on learning more about Lambda and Azure Functions). Download the book and let me know what you think!
