tinyFaaS: A Lightweight FaaS Platform for Edge Environments

For my final thesis I designed a Function-as-a-Service platform that can be run on constrained infrastructure at the edge, e.g. to aid IoT development.

I later used that as a basis for my paper that was accepted at the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Fog Computing. The prototype is of course available on GitHub.

tinyFaaS uses Docker for process isolation, a Python service to manage Docker containers, and a reverse proxy written in Go (which got me into Go!)

This is going to revolutionize fog computing, amazing!
