Discussion on: Why local development for serverless is an anti-pattern

I would not say local deployment is an antipattern. But when you use proper unit tests locally you need it only in special cases.
Each developer should find her own fit.
I myself really like unit tests, try to avoid local emulation of lambda and then run integrations test in the cloud.
Especially with aws lambda you will not get the iam access denied errors catched testing locally...
