Fn project: How serverless empowers developers to adopt different programming languages

The idea of adopting multiple programming languages to build highly distributed applications is not new to anyone. We all been taught to use necessary toolkits to solve certain problems in the most efficient way. 12Factor concept helped us to understand how to shift from the monolithic applications to smaller functional units - microservices, with that we can extract the most critical pieces of code into a microservice that can be made natively fault-tolerant.
