What we're about

A community that grew into The Consultancy. Besides free Cloud learning events (for Engineers), we offer for-fee Cloud Architecture & Data Engineering advice (to Executives) worldwide. We can also connect community members looking for work to jobs in the Cloud.

SERVERLESS TORONTO BELIEFS

We believe that Today's code is Tomorrow's Technical Debt, so we advocate the introduction of Serverless Technologies and a Serverless Mindset – to achieve business agility through using Managed Services and other people's APIs. (Simply put, Serverless is "Less IT Mess" :)

IT'S ALL ABOUT PASSION

Sometimes we're good at things we don't really care for, but it's that passion that will drive us to succeed. Steve Jobs once said, "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle."

So, if you found your passion (related to IT), please tell us about it. If you're still searching, check us out. You may find it here – because we cover a variety of forward-looking IT topics.

NEED A QUICK CLOUD OR DATA ENGINEERING ADVICE?

As true believers in Community networking and experience sharing, we offer Free Online Consultations. If your Company needs little help:

• Send us a message about your projects, dilemmas, doubts or fears, and if there's a match, your team will receive a complimentary (and confidential) 45-minute consultation.

• It will give you a fresh and unbiased perspective about "the thing" you're trying to build in the Cloud.

NEED A SECOND OPINION ON APPLICATION/DATA ARCHITECTURE MODERNIZATION?

If you are an Executive in need of "Emergency Advice," here is WHY & HOW we can help you:

• Thanks to our vast IT experience fed by Passion, Curiosity and the Serverless Mindset, we know that

1. Technology is not the point. The reason that we're doing this – any of this, is in service of some business goal.

2. The Customer value that your organization is trying to create is the point!

• That's why we focus on creating tangible values for our clients (like ROI, efficiencies, risk reduction, cost savings) – not work for work's sake:

TRY US OUT, AND:

• we'll uncover hidden opportunities to improve your business results (because we can see your options Further than traditional IT Architects).

• It's simply impossible to get a reliable Second Opinion from the same person who gave you the First one.

• Even if the Second Opinion confirms what you already know, it's beneficial to get confidence that you have done everything you can to ensure your project's success.

• Second Opinion engagement will deliver results quickly!

Serverless Toronto "Second Opinion" engagements are confidential, can be arranged on a flat-fee or hourly basis (your call), and require NO long-term commitment to us.
