You don't always need to one-up the big bad with an even more threatening villain. … [Read more...] about Unannounced games we want to see on PlayStation 5
Recruit team members committed to serverless. Serverless is a step into the DevOps realm. "They're technically savvy, but they have an understanding of both development and operations at the high level," Brayley- Berger says.
