Hmm… I think you’re touching on an awful lot of interesting points. We have worked out a perfectly reasonable way of having a staging and production environment and CI pipeline, including using very good mocks for local dev.

I would therefore say your characterisation that it’s production only isn’t valid.

I would point to my other serverless blog posts to answer a lot of these points too.
