'Lambda and serverless is one of the worst forms of proprietary lock-in we've ever seen in the history of humanity'

@yogthos I would argue it depends.
You can perfectly well build things that can deploy to various “serverless” platforms /and/ can be also built as a regular “fat” binary to run on your server.

I find the whole slew of proprietary services (queues, messaging, DB, object storage, ...) that AWS and GCP offer to be much more noxious, from a lock-in perspective.

@kellerfuchs @yogthos yeah you can use those services without getting locked in, but they definitely design them with lock-in in mind, :)

@yogthos My point was that the lock-in is much worse with things like IAM, message queues, databases, ..., rather than with services which are literally “we will run N copies of your code”.
