Fair enough, but what is is a serverless application? A Lambda isn’t an app by itself, heck, it can’t even communicate with the world outside of A...

This allows you to include dependencies th...

I spent last week at DevOps Enterprise Summit in Las Vegas where I had the opportunity to talk with many people from the world’s largest companies about DevOps, serverless, and the ways they are delivering software faster with better stability. We were encouraged to hear of teams using serverless from cron jobs to core bets on accelerating dig...
