Meet the members of the OpenFaaS community at KubeCon North America, held in San Diego this November 2019. Hear talks on OpenFaaS from users and the Founder.
Whether you’re going to be at KubeCon, or fighting off a case of “Fear of Missing Out” (fomo), we’ve got some great resources for you to get connected and to feel part of the excitement.
As KubeCon 🌮 approaches, we wanted to give a shout-out from OpenFaaS to our awesome homepage and @github sponsors.— OpenFaaS (@openfaas) November 14, 2019
Thank you for helping us make a great platform for teams to build and run their microservices, Docker containers, and functions. 👑https://t.co/W1D8VciZJ6 pic.twitter.com/fStC65zDxt
You can find out how individuals can become Sponsors of the work of OpenFaaS, and how companies can associate their brand with the most popular Open Source Serverless project on the CNCF Landscape.
Catch a talk
It’d be great to see you attend one or more of our sessions over the course of the week, where you will have a chance to meet me in person and to hear what kind of problems companies are solving with OpenFaaS. I’ll of course have swag, whilst stocks last.

There’s also a talk from Ed Wilde, from an OpenFaaS end-user company (Form3): How we moved from JIRA to GitHub for fun and profit using Serverless @ Goto, Copenhagen, Denmark
It’s great to see so many talks from the project being given over the course of a week.
Stefan Prodan, from the OpenFaaS community is also going to be giving two talks on Flux. The Flux project was built as Weaveworks’ take on continuous-deployment for Kubernetes, and has since become a CNCF Sandbox project.
If you don’t get into town early enough to catch my talk at Cloud Native Rejekts, you can find out more about the conference on the Google Kubernetes Podcast #79 with with Chris Kühl, the founder of the event. I’ll be speaking about inlets and the inlets-operator, a free HTTP/S and TCP tunnel for develops and ops.
Really excited to see @inletsdev growing up and leaving home with its own @github org and a place on the @CloudNativeFdn Landscape.— Alex Ellis (@alexellisuk) October 16, 2019
A big thank you to @iboonox for providing a logo. Website will be coming soon.

Meet with me in person
For everybody who is really excited about @GitHub sponsors, we already have 4 ways to support the ongoing development and independence of @openfaas. When @github accept my beta request we'll have a 5th option.— Alex Ellis (@alexellisuk) May 25, 2019
OSS is not free 🤫, show your support today: https://t.co/nEWTjAt3HA pic.twitter.com/w3NROasckT

Case-study with OpenFaaS Ltd professional services
This case-study is about OpenFaaS Cloud (“Multi-user PaaS for Kubernetes managed through git”)
DX is both an OpenFaaS Ltd client and a Platinum homepage sponsor. They are one of the leading companies for point of sale (POS) solutions for Cinemas and venues all across Norway. Here are a few words from DX co-founder, Christian Sakshaug and the experience so far:
With help from OpenFaaS Ltd, we have been able to move forward faster with the transformation of our platform adopting both AWS and Kubernetes with EKS. It has been a brilliant experience, how we can both “lift and shift” legacy code and incrementally migrate our microservices too using the “strangler pattern”. The ease of use and focus on developer-community has meant we can be part of the development process of OpenFaaS Cloud.
By adopting OpenFaaS Cloud we have been able to begin migrating both our legacy PHP applications with our existing Dockerfiles, and our newer .NET 3.0 microservices which we deployed to AWS EKS. We also funded the development of AWS ECR support for OpenFaaS Cloud and are proud to be able to give back to the community wherever possible, such as through our Platinum homepage sponsorship.
If you’d like to know more, you’ll find Christian on Slack or you can find me next week.
Couldn’t make it to San Diego? How about Amsterdam?
If you couldn’t make KubeCon this year, it’s understandable, especially for those who are travelling from Europe or who have used up their budget already. How about Amsterdam in March 30 – April 2, 2020?
We’re looking for end-users who are using OpenFaaS or OpenFaaS Cloud in some way who would like to talk about it. I’d personally be happy to help you prepare a talk abstract and potentially be a co-speaker with you at the event also.
Let us know if you would like to submit a talk together to KubeCon Amsterdam which is happening in March 2020.@alexellisuk would be happy to help you prepare, submit, and deliver the talk. https://t.co/BAvNFqsDaA— OpenFaaS (@openfaas) November 13, 2019
