Discussion on: Future of backend development

I worked at a small creative agency that switched from WordPress to serverless solutions. Webapps, websites and one pagers were not the main product but there were a decent amount of clients who requested them.

Because of the focus the dev team was extremely small (three people), the switch was really nice because front-enders only needed to know some nodejs to get traditional back-end stuff to run. With some services CI, auth and a CMS are covered as well. I think it could be a game changer for small agencies like that.

I'm pretty sure that there are use cases for serverless, especially at initial stages or for (functionally) small backends. But this is just a tiny piece of huge IT sector. From this point of view serverless is just slightly relaxes constant very high demand for developers able to do traditional backend development.
