If you know me well then you probably know how in love I am with serverless backends, cloud functions, lambdas, and whatever other fancy names they can give for basically a pay-only-for-what-you-use server.

Although I've only been using it for AWS Lambda, I recently made a little mistake that turned out to be a great discovery, and in this post I'll tell you all about it!

This post is about how to easily create a Reagent project that will get you up and running with familiar tooling similar to other React and NodeJs.
