Facebook Chatbots with OpenWhisk [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 10/9/17 12:00 PM
This weekend I decided to take a quick look at running Facebook Chatbot, aka Facebook Messenger Platform, on the OpenWhisk platform.

Rebuilding a Flex Mobile App as an Alexa Skill [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 10/4/17 5:00 PM
Many, many moons ago I created a ridiculous Flex Mobile app called TBS Horoscope. This was for the Nook platform, eventually moved to Amazon Android App store (where it still sits actually) and one of my few commercial apps. The app was fairly simple. It generated a fake horoscope when an astrological sign was requested and persisted it for the day. That way it would be a bit more "realistic&qu

Reading a Text File on OpenWhisk [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 10/2/17 4:00 PM
Many months ago I wrote a quick post on OpenWhisk, serverless, and persistence (Serverless and Persistence). In that article I mentioned that while your serverless actions are stateless and you should not rely on the file system, you do have access to it and can make use of it.
