Adventures in Serverless Land to Support a Fight Against Corruption

As most people in tech know, “serverless” is the new buzzword “hotness” and lots of blog posts/books/utilities/tweets/etc. are being written about it every day.

Devstep updates

The third release of the Devstep Docker image came out last night along with a brand new Golang CLI featuring some very nice improvements and new functionality. The CHANGELOG is here and on this post I’ll cover some exciting new stuff I was able to get in place. Docker image updates Starting with the base image updates, the 0.2.0 release dropped from 1.168GB down to 867.7MB MB representing a ~25% reduction on disk usage. Read more
