Serverless software architectures have generated a lot of interest. How much interest? Like, 2000 people at a conference breakout session —that level of interest. The photo below shows Datadog devops evangelist Matt Williams delivering a session about Lambda at AWS re:Invent last December. The jam-packed venue was originally designed to house “Phantom of the Opera.”
I’ve been going to tech conferences for 25 years, and I have never been to a breakout that required a mezzanine before. Serverless is catching like wildfire.
