We're excited to be selected for one of the Lightning Talks right after the Erlang Keynote at the ACM SIGPLAN, ICFP Erlang Workshop 2021.


Serverless runtimes are often hidden in a cloud providers offering and exposed solely by their programming API and deployment procedures. In this talk, we’ll explore an open-source Serverless runtime built for the cloud and on-premises, running on the BEAM with a polyglot programming model to build general purpose applications.

Building general purpose applications using multiple languages and having a story how to handle state was our main motivation to explore the space of a Serverless runtime to be built. We think the BEAM, OTP and Elixir/Erlang are a perfect match to build on.

With this talk, we combine herein the world of the BEAM with cloud technology like a gRPC-based protocol, Kubernetes and a polyglot programming model with languages supported like Go, JavaScript, JVM-languages, Python and many more.
