Instead of a collection of functions calling each other, the best serverless applications are:

  • Thick client code handling all interaction logic
  • Heavy use of managed services (e.g., AppSync, Cognito, @Auth0, @Algolia, @Cloudinary)
  • Small glue functions.

The key benefit of serverless is not "no servers to manage". It's "almost no backend code".

⚡️💡

 Think of managed services like the electricity that runs through your home.

// Less Code

// Elasticity

// Maintainability

Go for a business that any idiot can run - because sooner or later, any idiot probably is going to run it.
