Building Serverless Based Functions with the New Express Serverless Platform 14 Day Trial

Fired up! Ready to go!

You’ve heard every buzzword. Microservices, APIs, Kubernetes and serverless just to name a few catchy ones. Let’s get real for a moment and acknowledge that these are just fancy words for the work that you and your team are doing day in and day out.  What if there was a way to do this work that was less painful? Less frustrating?


At LunchBadger, we believe in the power of developers. From day 1, our ambitious mission has been to make life a little easier for developers. When developers get the job done quicker, businesses grow faster. It’s just that simple. So, when you access the Express Serverless trial, you’re treated to a visual canvas with drag-n-drop, automatic deployment of your microservices in a Kubernetes Runtime so you don’t have to navigate all of the complexity and so much more.


(No Credit Card Required)


Today, on behalf of the entire team, I’m proud announce the launch of the free 14-day trial of the Express Serverless platform. In a matter of minutes, you can get serverless function based microservices up and running. You may already know the drill: connect legacy data sources, deploy this business logic using functions and finish it out by exposing this new functionality as a brand new API. New APIs in less time than it takes to order the next flat of Red Bull off Amazon Prime (we tested this!).


What seems like an easy task….is actually complex and hard.


We get it. So, instead of doing all of the day-in-day-out heavy lifting, you can focus on business requirements, logic and how your microservices are being automatically deployed to a Kubernetes Runtime.  


As part of the trial, you get a guided walkthrough that will take you through the entire process. From choosing your data source to creating API Endpoints and tracing your API workflow, the new trial environment lets you try out all of the features and get a taste for how easy composing, managing and deploying APIs and Microservices can be. Finding and exploring next gen technology like Express Serverless Platform isn’t just for ease-of-use. If you want to stay agile and continue to build, code and deploy fast – you need new ways of working that will drive your business forward.


Building Enterprise-Ready Serverless Functions with Express Serverless Platform

If you’re seeking out solutions for an Enterprise use case, the Express Serverless Platform 14 Day trial gives you the ability to preview all of the latest features, without having to commit to lengthy contracts or even provide a credit card. From start to finish, the Express Serverless Platform allows you to leverage what you already have with legacy systems or create new microservices across multiple clouds of your choice including on premise. We’re actively seeking enterprise evaluations of Express Serverless Platform so if you’re interested in something more, we’re listening.


Express Gateway is the API Gateway of Choice in Express Serverless Platform

As cosponsors of Express Gateway, you’ve heard us talk a lot about the open source API Gateway. Guilty as charged. In the LunchBadger platform you can put Express Gateway to work exposing and managing your microservices for consumption as APIs. Deploy or configure an API gateway to connect your APIs – internally or externally. Quickly scaling your application is just that simple. So, when it came time to choosing an API Gateway that was cloud agnostic, flexible and developer friendly, Express Gateway was the right choice.


In case you’re not familiar with the project, Express Gateway is built on Express.js, a minimalistic framework for Node.js. For enterprises, it’s clear that implementing and supporting an API Gateway can be difficult. In fact, as maintainers of Express Gateway, we’ve found more than a few enterprises shared critical support needs. So, you asked. We listened. Now, we included Enterprise support for Express Gateway as part of the LunchBadger offerings


As part of the trial, you can learn more about Express Gateway and get the support you need to build web applications, mobile, B2B integrations, or deploy your developer SDK fast and easy. 


Kubernetes Runtime and What’s Next for Express Serverless Platform

As we look forward to building out the Express Serverless Platform, we hope to incorporate the important feedback of developers, enterprises and every day builders, like you. Right now, we’ve included an automatic deployment in a Kubernetes Runtime as part of the LunchBadger platform.


This wasn’t an accident – it was direct feedback from enterprises and developers, like you.


Once you have signed up, hit us up in chat or social media and share your use cases. In the platform, you can request a 1:1 demo where we’ll discuss your use case, answer tough questions about APIs or Microservices. If you’re not ready to commit, it’s completely free for 14 Days with no credit card required. So, now’s the time to get onboard and help shape the future of LunchBadger!
