Cloud Native, Content & Community

I help companies on their Cloud Native journey, to create leading content, and to build enduring community.

Partner with OpenFaaS Ltd for Considerate, Confident, Consulting

Cloud Native Consulting

The Cloud Native landscape can be a confusing place to navigate, so partner with us for your journey. We'll ask you considerate questions, give an external perspective on the problem and reassure your team with my experience and troubleshooting skills.

As a former Docker Captain and active CNCF Ambassador, speaker, author and respected open source maintainer, our founder is used to helping people solve problems and get wins. Whether you need help with CI/CD, Microservices, Queues, Docker, Golang, OSS, Serverless, Kubernetes, Managed Cloud & Architecture, or something else entirely, it's likely that we can be of help.

Community is your Fly-wheel

Having spent the past 5 years learning how to build enduring community, we'll help you invest in your community and build resources for them. Creating community takes time and experience, so we'll be there to help you build and bolster yours to create a fly-wheel effect.

Content is King

We create engaging content about your product and projects. The kind of posts that hit the front page of Hacker News. In a world where we are flying less we need new ways to reach developers and buyers. We build Integrated packages of sample apps, demos, and top notch copywriting to help you build and maintain an audience, and convert interest into sales.
