Tutorial on Serverless and vHive at ASPLOS 2022

Early Registration Deadline
February 8, 2022

This tutorial provides an overview of serverless cloud computing and introduces the vHive ecosystem, a full-stack open-source framework for serverless experimentation and innovation. The tutorial seeks to educate the participants about serverless computing and benchmarking methodology, and teach the researchers from the computer architecture and computer systems community to use vHive for their research. About half of the tutorial will be devoted to hands-on sessions on writing serverless applications, analyzing their performance in production and open-source serverless clouds as well as instrumenting and optimizing serverless infrastructure across the stack. To participate in the hands-on sessions, in-person attendees need to bring their own laptop.
