A must-have book for serverless computing experts and enthusiasts.

Look inside
Take the pain out of managing serverless applications. Knative, a collection of Kubernetes extensions curated by Google, simplifies building and running serverless systems. Knative in Action guides you through the Knative toolkit, showing you how to launch, modify, and monitor event-based apps built using cloud-hosted functions like AWS Lambda. You’ll learn how to use Knative Serving to develop software that is easily deployed and autoscaled, how to use Knative Eventing to wire together disparate systems into a consistent whole, and how to integrate Knative into your shipping pipeline.

about the technology

With Knative, managing a serverless application’s full lifecycle is a snap. Knative builds on Kubernetes orchestration features, making it easy to deploy and run serverless apps. It handles low-level chores—such as starting and stopping instances—so you can concentrate on features and behavior.

about the book

Knative in Action teaches you to build complex and efficient serverless applications. You’ll dive into Knative’s unique design principles and grasp cloud native concepts like handling latency-sensitive workloads. You’ll deliver updates with Knative Serving and interlink apps, services, and systems with Knative Eventing. To keep you moving forward, every example includes deployment advice and tips for debugging.
