In each issue of “The Serverless Mindset” I will provide insights for software engineers building serverless applications. Whether you are just warming up to serverless or are a seasoned builder, my goal is to serve you with useful and actionable information.
Who are you and why should I listen to you?
I have been a software engineer for over a decade, working for a number of different organisations, from large multinationals to startups.
I have spent the last 5 years building and designing serverless workloads. I was part of a team that built a 100% serverless conversational AI platform, back when very few people had even heard of serverless! I am now building a beautiful new payment ecosystem and, yes, you got it, we are going full-on serverless.
Over the last few years, I have been blown away by the sheer amount of gained productivity that comes as a result of using serverless. But I have also hit some roadblocks and lived through a few nightmares!
I have gained not just knowledge but also the wisdom that comes from failing and having to think really hard about real-world problems, whether it’s to do with scalability, performance, or security.
What if I (or my company) am not into serverless?
Hopefully, you should still find this newsletter useful. I understand serverless to be a mindset as opposed to a black or white set of technologies. Whatever form or shape your current tech stack looks like, you can make more money and spend more time focusing on your business logic by approaching your work with a serverless mindset.
What kind of content will you be sending me?
The lion’s share of the content will be quick and easily digestible posts. Occasionally, there will be long form articles, videos and voice notes.
