Actually, a couple of questions  

1.) Does your book cover how to take an app that is running successfully in a K8S environment and move it to AWS (or other) platform for serverless execution?
2.) If not, what advice would you give to move a K8S app to serverless? Actually, your advice is welcome whether it's in the book or not.

Thanks!

1) Sorry, the book does not cover Kubernetes related recipes. The book covers most of the important serverless / fully managed services within AWS, and even looks into FaaS within Azure and Google Cloud. I wish I included some recipes on containerization, but the pages already came close to 500 and the original target was 400.
2) Regarding moving K8s app to serverless, I assume you are referring to serverless container orchestration. One thing to note is that Serverless services in general are cloud-provider specific and each of them will have their own migration path. Amazon's solution to serverless container orchestration is AWS Fargate. AWS now even has EKS which is effectively K8s as a service. Google has announced Google Run which is Google's answer to serverless containers and runs on Google's version of K8s. However, first you need to decide if you are ok with vendor-lockin with the advantage of less maintenance efforts or want a generic one like K8s with bit more maintenance efforts. Anyway Google's serverless solution is based on K8s. Did I answer your question correctly?
