This talk is about how we built Quivr - the open-source virtual brain. In just over 3 months we are at 22k stars and 12k active users. This is a story of the crazy highs, some broken production and how we created a community behind this project.
As more and more larger companies adopt the benefits of a Serverless-First approach the appetite to follow has grown. Adopting Serverless within large scale organisations is not a simple task, but it’s not the technology that’s slowing things down, it’s the organisational challenge. In this talk I walk back on the journey I’ve taken several enterprises on in their adoption of Servleres. Showing the challenges, the wins and the losses, and overall a shared socio-technical framework to set your journey up for success, “The Serverless Staircase”
Don’t focus on the technology alone and wait for the rest to come with you, it’s a people challenge as much as a technical one.
