All the Ops you need to know to Dev Serverless

Serverless application development has significantly changed the way that developers are building applications. One of the biggest challenges out there is understanding the operational aspects of this new world without the need to manage servers and operating systems, but still being responsible for availability and performance. What does it mean to have a 100% available system that can’t be monitored for uptime? How should you think about networking in an application where services are invoked via a managed API? If your application is idle for long periods of time, what should your operational dashboards show?
