Discussion on: Why I chose F# for our AWS Lambda project

I actually agree on Python being a nightmare to debug, and testing at runtime only by design. Thanks for your detailed answer. I don't know much about F# so I guess I'll take a look.

I personally use TypeScript for most of my work now (but you want to get rid of numerous dependencies so it doesn't seem a good choice for you, still for lambdas it is a great fit as you can use webpack post compilation and get really small packages in the end with quick cold starts). It seems a middleground choice, but it can communicate with basically anything, runs everywhere, many people know nodejs as a basis and it is "good enough" for me.
