Brian LeRoux, Co-Founder and CTO at Begin.com

 Vancouver, Canada

 Hero since 2019

Brian LeRoux is the cofounder and CTO of continuous delivery vehicle Begin.com and core maintainer of the serverless framework OpenJS Architect. Brian helped create the terse .arc manifest format that unlocks the power of building severlessly with primitives instead of configuration frameworks while still enjoying the determinism and interoperability of standard AWS CloudFormation.

From 2017 to present Brian spoke at a Canadian metric tonne of serverless community events as they sprang up all over the globe: Vancouver, Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Austin (to name a few!). Brian is also very online. You can find him blogging often at blog.begin.com and always up for the friendly fire that is twitter dot com.

Brian is an advocate for the open web and awkwardly expresses his love of JavaScript at wtfjs.com which was last updated approximately one billion years ago. He also has a non-breaking space tattoo. Brian believes the future is open source, serverless, and will be written by hackers like you.
