The Serverless Framework helps build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run.
This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster.
The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, and more.
It's a command-line tool, providing scaffolding, workflow automation and best practices for developing and deploying your serverless architecture. It's also completely extensible via plugins.
Serverless is an MIT open-source project, actively maintained by a full-time, venture-backed team.
Open source is a philosophy that promotes the free access and distribution of an end product, usually software or a program.
Microservices is an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services, which implement business capabilities.
