Serverless services make it incredibly easy to start building. They reduce time to market, improve uptime (generally), and lower overall costs when starting up. But there’s an entire world to consider before going serverless that most of us forget about - business operations. Aside from shifting ownership from hardware to software, you also have roles that need reassignment, an organizational culture to shift, and much more. Join Allen and Benjamen as the two dive into the subject and offer lessons learned from personal experiences in their careers.
