The Cube with Sam Kroonenburg | A Cloud Guru

By Lis Vinueza  |  October 30, 2017  |   Interviews   |  

What companies spend years building using traditional server based architectures, Sam built in less than 30 days, making A Cloud Guru the world's first serverless startup. 


“The biggest challenge we had was that I didn’t have enough time to build our school…. So I used serverless technologies, which helped me do my work faster. This was in 2015, so we were definitely a bit ahead of our time. A Cloud Guru would not exist if it wasn’t for serverless.” - Sam Kroonenburg
