Serverless is a recent addition to the long list of technologies that promise to accelerate software delivery, reduce cost of compute ownership and provide unicorns and rainbows for all. And like all industry buzzwords it generates enthusiasm and scepticism in equal measure – how to move beyond the hype?

ServerlessDays started life as JeffConf, a tongue in cheek conference in the spirit of Paul Johnston’s blog post, “Serverless is just a name. We could have called it Jeff”, an attempt to move beyond the Serverless buzzword and focus on the practical use of function as a service platforms and the value they provide. It is a one day, community focused, single track event centred on real world Serverless based solutions. It’s about fostering a community and helping all of us learn from each other as we embrace a new way of building applications.

This year, Portland is hosting a ServerlessDays. It is being hosted at The Armory in downtown Portland, a black-box space in the heart of the city.

CFP Description

Serverless is a broad umbrella, and we are looking for people who have years of experience working with and problem-solving using serverless platforms to those who are just beginning in the field.


We have two formats of talk you can submit for.
  • Talk - 20-30 minutes
  • Lightning Talk - 5 minutes
  • We are looking for:

    • Are you new to Serverless? Tell us about your serverless learning journey!
    • Experience with Serverless frameworks in production and under load?
    • Serverless promises to lower the total cost of ownership: what are real-world experiences?
    • Serverless vs. vendor lock-in: experiences with company politics and/or real-world problems, and strategies to overcome resistance?
    • Are you doing something genuinely cool? Or built the most amazing Rube Goldberg machine! Tell us about it? Let’s have some fun with this!
    • CFP Process

      Inclusivity is very important to us and the CFP process is anonymized to minimise selection bias. Please be aware of this when submitting your response to not add your company name or identifying information in your talk description or subject. Otherwise, we will have to remove it before it goes to the CFP committee.
