Discussion on: Why Are Some Engineers Missing The Point of Serverless?

This is a great article! Engineering is all about tradeoffs, and I appreciate that you outlined both the positives and negatives of serverless for that discussion. I'm onboard with the serverless movement, but I have seen some opposition coming from others that have a longer history with more traditional architectures and environments.

Thank you so much for the feedback, Thomas! We agreed that yes, cold start adds latency but we also argued that it may not be a strong enough argument to say that serverless doesn't make sense at all. If you know when and how to use it, it can be a lifesaver (and potentially a huge cost/time saver, as well).
