About the course

In recent years, serverless has been gaining traction both as a cost-savings option and a method of deploying applications and services without having to deal with the underlying infrastructure, scaling, or any other of the common problems of maintaining an application. This course takes a look at serverless from the perspective of someone currently relying on containers and container orchestration, who is considering dropping the boxes in favor of the serverless approach. We’ll look at the pros and cons of making the switch, which architectures work best, concerns, cautions, and what serverless offerings each of the big 3 cloud platforms offer us.
