Serverless Data APIs
Evan Weaver (Co-Founder/CTO @Fauna) talks about FaunaDB, and enabling serverless, NoOps databases as new applications architectures emerge around APIs, Jamstack and other distributed systems.

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. You’ve been at the forefront of really interesting tech in the past. Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
Topic 2 - Over the last few months, we’ve been digging into newer distributed architecture elements (Jamstack, GraphQL, Serverless, etc.). But we haven’t dug into the role of data in these architectures. Help us understand this 4th generation architecture, or client-serverless, and the role of data.
Topic 3 - Data is still stored somewhere, but its usage is now made up of a bunch of data coming together in various contexts. How does Fauna fit into this new world when clients and APIs play as much of a role as “the database”?
Topic 4 - As you talk to people that come from a SQL / Relational-DB background, how does the discussion go in terms of how things change and some of the common bottlenecks/problems that Fauna can solve for them?
Topic 5 - Databases have traditionally been difficult to scale, protect, maintain, etc. How does you enable the data layer or API access to now follow a NoOps model?
Topic 6 - Where are the best places for people to engage to learn more about how to not only use the Jamstack architecture, but apply the principles around Fauna for Data/API management?
