Automation can boost your development rapidly, especially with serverless development.
Serverless development is a trend that embraces cloud computing. There are numerous advantages, but let us focus on the most important ones:
We do not need to be focused on a single platform only; as the core essence of serverless development are functions, we can write them in Python, node.js or Java using the same framework for management and deployment.
There are many cloud solution providers: AWS, Azure, Google Cloud. With serverless applications managed by a proper framework, you don't need to worry about where to host it as cloud services are compatible with one another.
One of the greatest advantages of serverless development is auto scaling. There is no need for an army of dev-ops to be focused on maintaining infrastructure. Infrastructure will do it on its own and will ensure the current hardware configuration is perfect for current traffic.
Configurating distributed systems can be very difficult and time consuming. There are great frameworks that can do it for us, but simple solutions are always best. As little configuration as possible within a single file will ensure everything works as required.
