I agree that an event-driven design would be better! The reasoning for that, and issues with implementing it, are coming in later posts. However, I think it’s important for adoption that we have the ability to port existing applications to serverless, and those are generally built on RPC. You shouldn’t have to redesign your application to be able to take advantage of the benefits of serverless (the redesign can come later).

I’m with Paul Johnston and Mike Roberts on provider lock-in not being a big deal, at least from the perspective of a single business.
