Serverless applications have a number of benefits and JavaScript is the most common language to write serverless functions in. Why not PHP? In this talk, I will discuss how I implemented first class PHP support into the Apache OpenWhisk platform. We’ll start by looking at OpenWhisk’s architecture and what happens when you invoke a function. Then, I’ll show you how I implemented the PHP support and walk though some example PHP serverless actions.
