An introduction to serverless architecture

Serverless architecture was born through the initiative of Amazon. The company was looking to promote an environment wherein a development team could be autonomous, small, and self-managed, allowing it to work on the whole software development cycle, from writing the code to shipping and delivering to production environments.

  • Authentication
  • SMS notifications
  • Email services
