I’m less than pleased with the verbalism “Serverless,” a bit of marketing-sprecht pitch to selling consumption-based functionality to the feckless. Not that Amazon’s “Lamda” is all that better a mouthful, but whatever the case I’d feel like less of a shill when talking about Microsoft’s lovely tech if it only had a better name.
The rub, of course is that Serverless—itself!—is great; an obvious yet revolutionary idea that is turning programming very much on it’s head.
As it turns out Serverless has been very much in the air, as of late. Indeed, I’ve lost count of the number of presentations and meetings I’ve had on the subject in the preceding month alone but it must be in the low dozens.
On Friday, December 7th—tomorrow, as of this writing—I’ll be presenting on the subject again; this time to a bunch of data professionals at Philly DataFest. I’d invite you to attend but the event has been sold out for weeks so you’ll have to wait for the next go-round.
