I know some of you have a visceral and negative feeling toward the word serverless. I felt that way at first too, but I'm kinda over it. Even if it's not a perfect word, it's done a good job of encapsulating a movement into a single word. That movement is far more than I'm qualified to explain.
But I do very much think it's worth knowing about. Developers of all sorts can take advantage of it, but I'm particularly fascinated about what it can do to extend the front-end developer toolbelt.
