This is a special edition of Modern Digital Applications.
July 9th, 2018 was the launch of a podcast episode. It was an episode of the “Modern Software Podcast”, a podcast sponsored by New Relic, and hosted by New Relic’s Fredric Paul and Tori Wieldt. This particular episode was titled “The Great Serverless Debate”. It was a debate between myself, and a good friend of mine, Clay Smith. Clay and I were guests on the show.
That episode was a huge success, and I still get asked questions about it today. It seemed to me that it was time for an update of that debate…a redux if you will. Since New Relic’s Modern Software Podcast isn’t active right now, I thought I would take on the challenge myself and host a redo of the great debate — based on what we know about serverless in 2020.
So, on February 21, 2020, Clay and I got together for an update to our views on the world of serverless.
This is The Great Serverless Debate, Redux. This is the second part of that interview.
