Hey everyone 👋🏼

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about my farewell to Thinktecture. After sharing that news back in December, many readers, followers, and friends reached out to ask what my next chapter would be. It was really hard not to share the news right away, but I had to wait for the right time.

I am more than excited to finally unveil that I will join Fermyon as a Cloud Advocate starting February 1st, 2024. 🎉

Why Fermyon?

I’ve been tracking Fermyon’s progress for an extended period of time, and I’m genuinely impressed by the team’s passion for WebAssembly and Fermyon’s vision of leading the upcoming era of cloud computing. My engagement with the Spin project dates back to its inception, and I believe that every developer stands to gain from leveraging it to create serverless applications. Joining the team excites me, as I look forward to assisting developers in building next-generation cloud-native applications and outlining how they can use WebAssembly to lay the foundation for future-proven distributed architectures.

So far, I’ve had the chance to meet some incredible team members IRL at Wasm.IO in Barcelona, at DockerCon in Los Angeles, and during ESPC 2023 in Amsterdam. I’m thrilled to be working with such a talented group of people, and can’t wait to meet the entire team soon. I’m looking forward to collaborating with them and help developers building next generation cloud-native & serverless applications.

What does Fermyon do?

Fermyon is a young company pioneering the next wave of cloud computing! They are all about this cool thing called WebAssembly (Wasm). You can think of Wasm as the magic ingredient that turbocharges how we - as developers - will build apps in the years to come. Fermyon’s open-source project, Spin, is the secret sauce that makes working with Wasm a breeze. Imagine building powerful apps without the usual hassle – Spin’s got our backs, making it simpler and more fun.

Fermyon Cloud is a frictionless, developer-centric cloud platform where you can run your Wasm apps without worrying about things like Infrastructure-as-Code or CloudOps. Using Fermyon Cloud, you can focus on building things instead of managing cloud resources. Fermyon Cloud allows you to run your workloads with NoOps! An excellent example of this approach is Fermyon Serverless AI, which enables developers to add generative AI capabilities to their applications without managing Large Language Models (LLMs) and their immersive compute requirements.

Last but not least, there is Bartholomew, Fermyon’s open-source micro-CMS (Content Management System). With Bartholomew, you can build blazing-fast websites leveraging Wasm and Spin. That said, you can use Bartholomew to craft your next blog, portfolio, or even your company’s website (that’s what Fermyon is actually doing) and run it on any Spin environment.

As I kick off this journey, I can’t wait to share insights, tips, and experiences about the world of Wasm in the context of distributed applications and cloud computing. We’ll unravel the mysteries of Spin together and see how it’s changing the game for developers.Get ready for a ride full of tech discoveries and innovations! I’m stoked to be a part of the Fermyon family, and I can’t wait to share this adventure with all of you.
