I find the SAM (Serverless Application Model) CLI extremely frustrating to use on Linux, starting with installation. But this week I learned two things that simplify both installation and operation. I’m passing them on in the hopes that they’ll be useful to you as well.
Abstract: “So, everyone’s talking about Serverless… and serverless, and server-less. Let’s talk about why Ken thinks Serverless = lower developer productivity and why containers still rule the day.
