The Serving of Serverless newsletter is a periodic newsletter with updates on the most interesting things happening in the world of serverless. If you want to stay up-to-date on serverless technology, be sure to subscribe to the newsletter or follow me on Twitter.
About two weeks ago, AWS re:Invent 2018 concluded. It was a huge week for serverless; AWS announced lots of releases for serverless, and they were all good. Many people are commenting on their excitement about things like Lambda layers, Lambda bring-your-own runtime, DynamoDB on-demand, and DynamoDB transactions. Those are all fantastic announcements, but I think everyone is overlooking the power of another great announcement: the ability to invoke Lambda functions from Application Load Balancer.
