Build Apps Quickly

No server operations

Scales seamlessly

Codeless

No need to manage uptime

Assumes responsibility for providing a defined set of services

Serviceful Service

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.

- JoeEmison (@joeemison)

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