We are successful !
Ruby is now a first class citizen in Serverless word!
I've originally launched serverless-ruby.org in March 2018 as a petition to bring attention of Serverless providers (like AWS Lambda, Azure Functions) that Ruby is a viable and popular enough language to be supported as a next native programming language in their FaaS stack. Developers were able to sign the petition by their Github. In the end the petition was signed by 1602 Developers !!!
It was a long way but now AWS Lambda supports Ruby allowing Ruby folks to do not only background processing stuff with Lambda functions, but also run Sinatra Ruby webserver or thanks to Jets build a full scale Ruby based project. On top of that thanks to Lamby you can even run Dockerized Ruby on Rails applications on AWS Lambda!
You don't believe me? Well this entire website runs Ruby on Rails under Lamby on AWS Lambda with a full Redis caching, DynamoDB database and Github Oauth2 integration! You can check out source on Github
That's why I've decided the petition page can retire in peace as best of what could happened already happened and turned it into Ruby Flow style post platform where you can submit your Serverless Ruby articles, howtos, T.I.L notes, ...
