Serverless is all the rage these days, but what is “serverless,” exactly? What does that term mean and what should the technology be used for? Is it the same as Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS)?

Alex Ellis weighs in on these and many other questions in today’s Full Stack Journey podcast. Alex consults on cloud application development, business, and marketing. You can follow him on Twitter @alexellisuk or visit his website).

Scott and Alex talk serverless, FaaS, using serverless/FaaS in on-premises environments, and what serverless/FaaS means for listeners.

Topics include:


* Serverless/FaaS projects and platforms

* Whether serverless/FaaS make sense for on-prem environments

* Is serverless/FaaS right for your environment? (Spoiler: it depends!)
