The Who, What, When, Where, and Why of Serverless

By Michelle Levine

Stackery is all about serverless, but when I started working here, I had never even heard of the term before. Since starting, I have been hounded by friends and family to explain what Stackery does, which always leads to questions about serverless that I didn’t know the answer to. Two months into the job, I’ve decided it is time to answer some of those questions for myself and others who might be new to the space. I now present to you the 5 W’s of serverless: Who? What? When? Where? And Why? Read on ..
