In this video, I explain what serverless computing is, by showing how I’ve used DigitalOcean Functions, to write a simple YouTube Bot in Python. This Bot is getting the latest published video on a YouTube Channel, and sends out a message to a Discord Channel. We discuss how to use APIs, store and retrieve Secrets, Tokens, use S3 Buckets, and much more. There is a lot of coding stuff in here, hope you’ll enjoy it! #serverless #python #digitaloceanfunctions
