AWS Lambda limitations explained

John Demian lays out Lambda’s runtime environment limitations for your consideration.

I gave Lambda a chance to impress me after Pam Selle gave us the hard sell, but I hit up against the 5-minute function execution timeout. Needless to say I was not impressed.

It’s nice to see they’ve increased that to 15 minutes, but there are other constraints to consider as well.

A crash course on Serverless with Node.js

If you’ve heard of serverless’ virtues, but have never taken that first step toward trying it out, this crash course is for you. Here’s how you might feel by the end:

What a journey. You have now witnessed the transition from traditional web development into the serverless revolution. With these simple tools we now have everything we need to create awesome, scalable, and reliable applications.

In my humble opinion, this is all still too much work for most of us to go through. AWS needs some serious competition in this space. Said competition is undoubtedly on the way.
