Python Power-Up: Elevating Your Workflows with Docker on Functions as a service

LAKSHMAN S (~lakshmansha)





In today's evolving digital landscape, optimizing workflows is not just a competitive advantage; it's a necessity for success. My talk is aimed at showcasing how Python, combined with Docker and Functions as a Service (FaaS), can transform your workflows into efficient, scalable, and portable solutions.

My motivation behind this talk steams to empower developers to use python's full potentials by integrating it seamlessly with Docker containers and serverless computing throught FaaS platforms.

Talk Details

In my talk, we'll dive deep into the synergy between Python, Docker, and FaaS, exploring how this combination can elevate your workflow. Attendees will lean:

  1. Introduction to Docker and FaaS.
  2. Python and Docker Integration.
  3. Deploying Python Functions as Serverless Workloads.
  4. Scaling Python Workloads with FaaS.
  5. Optimizing Python Workflows for Performance and Cost.

Who will benefit

Its designed for developers, DevOps engineers, and technical lead who work with python and eager to streamline their workflows, enhance scalability and embrace modern deployment practices.

Key Takeaways

By the end of this talk, attendees will:

  • Understand the integration of Python, Docker, and FaaS in modern software development.
  • Gain practical insights into containerizing Python applications using Docker.
  • Learn how to deploy Python functions as serverless workloads on FaaS platforms.
  • Discover techniques for optimizing Python workflows for scalability, performance, and cost-effectiveness.
