Cloud Native, Community & Content

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

Consulting from OpenFaaS Ltd

Your Partner for Cloud Native

We'll partner with your experts on your Cloud Native journey. We'll ask you considerate questions, give an external perspective on the problem and reassure your team with our experience, network, and problem-solving skills.

As a CNCF Ambassador, speaker, author and respected open source maintainer, our founder brings a wealth of experience, and key industry connections.

Whether you need help with cloud microservices architecture, OpenFaaS, Docker, Kubernetes, Open Source, or something else, then we are ready to help.

Community is your fly-wheel

With a track-record of building organic developer communities, we'll help your team develop the strategy and tactics to gain even more traction.

Engage your audience

In a world where we are flying less we need new ways to reach developers and buyers. You need the kind of posts that hit the front page of Hacker News.

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.

Let's start today

Reach out over email and let us know how we can help. From there we'll define a Statement of Work (SoW) with well-defined outcomes and transparent pricing.
