Serverless is quickly becoming the new buzzword in town, and has been getting a lot of attention in the tech world. This is mainly due to the capabilities it promises and being able to build highly scalable apps. A serverless architecture is a way to build and run applications and services without having to manage infrastructure.
Serverless doesn’t mean you don’t use servers, it just means you focus on design and code, without having to worry about the moving parts. Before serverless computing, you had to take care of the whole underlying IT infrastructure.
With serverless development, you can start coding right away. You skip a lot of internal complexity, making it easier to get to market. And because you don’t have to create a whole fixed infrastructure, you can scale up and down according to use, so you only pay for what you use.
Our CTO Stefan wrote a guest blog at the Google Cloud Blog about how we used serverless development to build our internal expense reporting system. He explains why we use serverless development, how we use Cloud Firestore and Cloud Functions, and he shows some code snippets.
