We are incredibly proud of the way the Serverless community steps up to the plate on a daily basis to contribute to the project and help guide newcomers.
To recognize our community superstars, we established the Serverless Champions program.
Our champions show serverless thought leadership. They contribute to serverless open source projects. They are all-around ambassadors in the community.

Marcia is a Senior Full-stack Developer from Uruguay, located in Finland. She has been designing and developing software professionally in companies like Rovio, IBM and Nokia for over 10 years.
Marcia has broad experience building and scaling performant software, and knows a lot about how to architect for the public cloud. She's got a long history with AWS, and has been working with serverless technologies since not long after Lambda was released.
In addition to being an engineering rockstar, she runs her own Youtube channel, in which she publishes at least one new video every week. In her channel, she focuses on teaching others how to use AWS serverless technologies and managed services. She is also an AWS Community Hero and runs the Finland AWS User Group.
Ryan has been building out cloud infrastructures since 2010, and currently focuses on automation tooling and Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) practices. He's both a contributor and user of Ansible and the Serverless Framework, and loves building in the open as much as possible.
Beginning with the Lambda developer preview, Ryan has built event-driven behaviors into infrastructure/deployment pipelines with Python and Lambda. Early on, he started sharing successes (and failed experiments) on ServerlessCode.com to help others and push for a common set of practices. One of those practices is the Serverless Framework: a common language spec for multiple providers to smooth the way from idea to implementation.
