AND Digital’s Andrew De Rozario explains why serverless matters today and how its role in the tech industry will evolve in the future.

Serverless computing: where did it come from? What role should it play in software engineering today? And what does its future look like? These are questions worth exploring if we’re to leverage serverless in a way that makes an impact.


In this session - run in collaboration with ScotlandIS - you’ll hear from AND Digital’s Andrew De Rozario as he opens up the story of serverless by putting it into the context of both the tech industry and the wider demands of business. He’ll offer first-hand insights from his experience using serverless set-ups in many different types of projects, and reflect on where it has proved effective and where it can also pose challenges and risks.


This session is designed for engineers who are interested in technology trends and industry shifts, and senior leaders that want a better understanding of the specific ways that serverless computing can provide real benefits to their organisation. This is an opportunity to get a practical perspective that joins the dots between the technical and the commercial aspects of the digital function.


This session is part of AND Digital’s and ScotlandIS’ Tech Week. Running from 18th-22nd October, Tech Week will feature Scotland’s best and brightest tech talents, who will showcase our dynamic digital sector and discuss the issues that matter in the industry today.
