The Ferris the Crab, along with the logos for TypeScript, .NET, and Go, sit above the text ‘Serverless Languages’.

Caveats

  1. I didn’t go searching for new serverless providers, these are the ones I already knew about.
  2. These are only the languages prominently listed with tutorials or examples on the provider’s website. You’ll notice, for example, that Rust on AWS Lambda is not included here even though I’ve written several blog posts about it!
  3. This is not an endorsement or review of any languages…

  1. It requires nightly Rust, and therefore unstable features.
  2. It is not async, and therefore not compatible with my favorite option for handling SQL: SQLx.

Why?

  1. I wanted to store all my blog posts in source control. I write them in Markdown which is an easy enough format to control, and I’m very much used to GitHub for storing my data for programming projects, so why not use GitHub to store the markdown of my blog…
