The (Futile) Resistance to Serverless
Nick Rockwell

It’s so obviously true that serverless is the future, and this is coming from the kind of guy who happily ran his personal email from a hand built box in his living room.

This is not to say that there won’t be room for the servermore crowd — they just won’t be the majority in the same way that most people don’t work on their car engines anymore.

But I think there’s a big opportunity here, because what seems to be going hand in hand with serverless is vendormore, and I think this is dangerous. There is an opportunity here to define the open serverless platform, so that the ops of a company becomes selecting a machine image and managing cattle, while the application developers work serverless. This is the next Linux kernel.
