In the case of AWS Lambda (or Azure Functions in my case) I prefer to use them unless I can't Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
They're simple, easy, cheap and they scale automatically out of the box.

Many programmers are like "I use the right tool for the job", but when new tools come around they're like "it's just a fad so I'm sticking to what I know."
Even when these tools solve actual problems and gain popularity and maturity, a lot of these "right tool for the job" people refuse to work with new technologies.
I (think I) know of at least a few people here who just outright refuse to work with cloud or containers or even anything that isn't vanilla JS (or jQuery) and HTML.
A tool you know may be right for the job simply because you know it, but if something is gaining traction, like in this case serverless solutions, I'll sure as hell try them out if I think I've got something for it.
If I'd start "simple" with "what I know" on each new project I did I would still be writing giant WinForms monoliths in VB.NET Smile | :)

I'm just saying there comes a time when you've got to try something new even when it *now* looks like the old would suffice.
That said, always wait for version 2 Wink | ;)
