Sustainable Digital Delivery - What Works? - Leeds Digital Festival 2019

As part of Leeds Digital Festival 2019, Conflux hosted the “Sustainable Digital Delivery” event - half a day of talks from local industry experts and community leaders. The topics for the day ranged from the engineering culture, MVP to open API - there was something for everyone.

Good logging — the foundation of operability for Serverless and IoT

Good logging — the foundation of operability for Serverless and IoT

Serverless is an emerging “new normal” for web-based applications and services where the unit of deployment and billing is a single function a few lines of code in length. Serverless enables radical transparency in billing and radical ease of use for developers; when combined with with marketplace (“app store”) offerings from cloud vendors like AWS — allowing teams to compose applications from pre-built functions rather than writing everything themselves — the Serverless provides hugely accelerated development times and (often) reduced operational cost.
