A RedMonk Conversation: Serverless WebSockets and the Serverless Stack
Listen in as our CEO, Matthew O'Riordan, talks to RedMonk co-founder, James Governor, about the rise of realtime, the power of WebSockets, the value of product-led business models, serverless, and of course - the really big question - why are applications so terrible at handling the apostrophes in Irish names?
So, what's in a serverless stack anyway? Compute, cache, database, etc. What's missing? The problem Ably helps to solve is creating a stateful connection back to the client, so developers can create a live connection for their users. It's about doing one thing well: composing services that scale with a great DX to make developers more productive.
Why not just use Kafka for realtime? What's the difference? And why WebSockets? This video delves into all that and much more.
