In this talk, I will be discussing the concept of serverless computing and how it's changing the way we develop applications. We will dive into serverless applications, including an introduction to Neon and its architecture. I will walk you through how Neon is implemented using code and demonstrate a few use cases. By the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of serverless computing and how Neon can be used to develop scalable, efficient, and cost-effective applications.
