We caught up with Kelsey Hightower, Staff Developer Advocate at Google, and Nate Taggart, CEO of Stackery, at a recent Serverless users group meetup. The pair were delivering a fire side chat on the state of serverless, and had keen insight not just into how this new technology fits into current applications, but how it fits in with the entire history of computing.
"I think serverless is high in the hype-cycle right now. We've reached peak mania over the potential. It's always a panacea. This technology feels new when in reality it's probably just a new version of the same old thing we do. There's this cycle we go through of abstract away, then take back control," said Taggart.
