View Florent's presentation here
Accompanying Code Repo here.

Synopsis: Having worked on projectriff.io (an open-source Function as a Service solution), I spent a significant time maintaining the Node function invoker.
Streaming is an important part of riff invokers' design so I had to significantly ramp up on Node.js streams.
This short talk is the introduction I would have loved to see when I started.
It will cover the fundamentals, showing some examples and highlight some pitfalls.

Florent is an R&D Developer at VMware Tanzu, formerly Pivotal, based in Paris, France.
