ACG’s Peter Sbarski and FaaS and Furious creator Forrest Brazeal top the inaugural cohort of AWS Serverless Heroes.


We’re proud to announce that ACG’s VP of Content, Peter Sbarski, and ACG Contributor Forrest Brazeal (creator of the FaaS and Furious cartoons) have been recognized as AWS Serverless Heroes.

Serverless Heroes are early adopters and spirited pioneers of the AWS serverless ecosystem. They evangelize AWS serverless technologies online and in-person as well as open source contributions to GitHub and the AWS Serverless Application Repository. These Serverless Heroes help evolve the way developers, companies, and the community at large build modern applications.

His work at A Cloud Guru allows him to work with, talk and write about serverless architectures, cloud computing, and AWS.
