This course is intended for anyone who wants to learn what serverless computing is and how it can impact government agencies. In three lessons, we’ll define serverless computing, differentiate serverless computing from other cloud models, such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service, and outline the benefits that this model can provide to the public sector.

After taking this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define serverless computing
  • Identify the benefits of serverless computing
  • Understand scenarios for serverless computing
