I just learned about "step functions" in AWS Lambda and I nearly fell out of my seat.

So, lambda functions may only run for 5 minutes. What if you need to do a bigger job?

If your answer is "define a state machine in json where each state is a lambda function" you would be correct!

Holy hell this sounds terrible.

Writing programs in JSON is apparently acceptable.

@dthompson JavaScript is literally a JSON superset

@calvin I'm not sure how to interpret this. Is this good or bad?
