    Welcome to Remotely Interesting brought to you by Netlify. There’s been a lot of buzz about “serverless” and what it is, but what does it mean to “think in serverless?” After all, it’s one thing to know what serverless means, but it’s another to be able to integrate it into strategic thinking. And in this episode, we have a special guest, Ivan Zarea, to help us with that serverless mindset.

In this episode, we talk about how we navigate the complex ecosystem and some of our favorite tools for being productive.
