The Serverless 12-Factor App
What is a 12-factor app? Adam Wiggins, the co-founder of Heroku, first popularized the concept in 2011, and the source of truth for the whole manifesto is 12factor.net. I say “manifesto” because it reads something like the Agile Manifesto. It’s a series of principles that, as you approach them, may make your software-as-a-service applications...

The Future of Serverless is… Functionless?
I’m in a position where I converse with our customers and cloud service providers, and I keep track of conversations happening through blogs and social media.
