Effective Java: Does Java have a good use in the Serverless world?

Hi Josh,

At my current work we have always used Java for our core product, however lately we have been developing some apps for Facebook with the Serverless framework using AWS services.
I was very impressed with this way of deploying code, and I noticed that developers mostly use Python, Javascript, Ruby, etc, for this kinda of work.

Do you think Java has a role in the Serverless idea of doing stuff, inspite of not being a scripting language ?

Hi Andres. I don't know enough about the Serverless framework to give you a good answer. That said, Java does have performance and scalability advantages over the languages you list. That doesn't mean that Java is "better," but it does mean that as applications get larger, Java may be a more suitable language.
