PAUL SWAIL | How To Navigate Serverless Best Practices
Podcast episode #1
I am excited to launch a brand new podcast! In each episode, I will be chatting with someone who has had an impact on me and the broader serverless community. The very first episode could not have had a better guest than Paul Swail. I hope you will consider subscribing to his newsletter where he shares invaluable serverless wisdom from years of hard-earned experience.
