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

No comment on what the future of web development might be, but I've found the Serverless Framework to be an extremely low friction way of writing and deploying code to AWS services.

Much recommended.

I've found it nice to work with too.

I think the key is figuring out whether it is the right tool for the job (or deliberately shaping the job around the tool)... If those criteria are met, it's a joy to work with.

That is great. Any examples where you would recommend serverless over traditional monolith?

That is cool. I love the idea, but I am really just scratching at the surface I think.

How did you go about learning Serverless Framework?

I wouldn't call myself an expert, but a couple things helped me get what little experience I have:

  • The documentation, examples and templates are better than average.
  • A lot of AWS services are either cheap as chips or anything you get up to while learning will fall comfortably into the free tier. This makes learning by doing really appealing, which is how I learn best anyway.

Sorry that's not much use, but I'm also pretty close to the surface!
