Serverless Anti-Patterns

Serverless is very new. Several companies are developing their systems with functions. In this talk, we report on a survey we carried out in the last year, to identify a set of serverless anti-patterns.

To produce this catalog, we surveyed and interviewed 30 experienced developers over the course of the last year, focusing on bad practices they found during the development of serverless-based systems and on how they overcame them. We identified a catalog of 7 serverless- specific anti-patterns by applying an open and selective coding procedure to derive the anti-pattern catalog from the practitioners’ answers.
