This week, from a snowy Portland Oregon, we spoke with Alex Ellis, founder of OpenFaaS. Ellis has hired on to VMware to work full time on the OpenFaaS serverless software, as part of VMware’s new Open Source Technology Center. Until now, Ellis has been working on OpenFaaS in his spare time while holding down a day job as an application developer at ADP. We spoke with him about why he made the decision to join VMware and what it means for the OpenFaaS community.
