Writing Serverless is time consuming compared to a monolith of the same language
Learning to write code to a completely new environment

It is the same runtime on the FaaS provider. The environment has restrictions but it is the same runtime. No new learnings.

Maintenance
Serverless needs a lot of maintenance compared to a crud app. Versioning and constant updates requiring a lot of time consuming

I respectfully disagree. Its the perspective I guess. Maintaining a lot of functions which do one and only thing or one huge blob of monolith that does a lot. If you are worried about maintainace, please give Serverless Framework (serverless.com/framework/) a try. It will not disappoint you.

AWS Lambda may be cheap . But API Gateway is not .

Compared to maintaining a fleet of infrastructure? And the team of devops that have to keep an eye on it to keep it up, patched and running?
