20:00-20:15 approximately: final questions and conclusion


In the world of serverless, where everything is meant to be simple and lean to manage, it is important to offer software engineering methods that are simple and closer to human thinking than today.

The RADON project ( addresses this challenge via a DevOps framework combining code with visual modelling of serverless- and microservices-based architectures.

The RADON framework augments the capability of the Eclipse Che environment to help to design, implement, orchestrate, and re-engineer complex serverless applications. The framework is centered around a generalization of the OASIS TOSCA standard, a modelling language to specify cloud application blueprints that are automatically deployable.

The talk will introduce the key features of the RADON Che-based framework and give demos to illustrate the solution.
