For a lot of people serverless = lambda! That’s a good start, compute is where everything started for cloud. But serverless goes beyond just using bunch of Lambdas in backend. Me & my friend Adithya used to get tired at answering repeatative questions from other friends challenging serverless. So we thought, instead of talking about low hanging fruits which can be done in serverless, let’s challenge ourselves into trying to implement what ‘we think’ would be hard to do on serverless.
- Circuit breakers and retries
- External / Centralized Configuration and Credential Management
- Asynchronous background tasks
- Real time / websockets
