Alex Ellis

I'm the lead and founder of the OpenFaaS project that brings a Serverless application style to Kubernetes and other platforms. OpenFaaS has become one of the leading projects in this space and helped form an industry. Within the project there's been over 200 contributors from all-around the world, 17k GitHub stars and I've built up a team of regular contributors and core team members who help lead and direct the project.

OpenFaaS is used in production by dozens of companies, some of which have joined the end-user community and have their logo listed on openfaas.com. I have written hundreds of blog posts, code samples on open source tech. As a CNCF Ambassador, I love building OSS communities and seeing contributors grow and thrive through relationship.

Leading the project has become a full-time job, but without funding, sponsorship or pay-cheque. I believe open-source should stay open and that we need to sustain both people and projects. If you do too, then become my sponsor today.

All my sponsors get exclusive Insider Updates on my OSS work, OpenFaaS features and news and events. Sponsor now to become an Insider today.
