Serverless Functions

So far, we saw how to create a database, access it, integrate external services, and access them. The next comes how to implement the application behavior, which will make use of several of these services and also specify a control flow.

The serverless functions are snippets of code or scripts that implement the application behavior. Complex logic can be written using serverless functions. They can easily access database, external services, and library functions through an API toolkit. A serverless function can be invoked remotely, by another function. It can be long running and scheduled.

Essentially, the Trillo serverless functions have more straightforward development and deployment process than AWS Lambda or Google Cloud Functions (and other comparable technologies). They execute in the space of the server and do not require separate billing.
