Discussion on: What do you think of the Serverless Framework?

I thinks is a great doorway to develop FaaS and other managed services. Has a ton of solutions and I see as some kind of "WordPress of Serverless". Said that I think is another level of abstraction, and never a cloud has a mapping 1:1 between services and capabilities so is not like an agnostic tool (other problem I see with Terraform). I thin since 1.0 SAM is mature to provide a great developer experience for newcomers to serverless (in AWS space at least). Now I'm leaning towards CDK.

Also, if you use some sort of component it is very concerning that Serverless Framework violates the security principle of least privilege sending your AWS credentials.
