Have you ever done something that's come back and bitten you?

I have (frequently). Asking an open source project to put more effort into supporting your favourite language (Ruby in my case) is asking to be hit by your own boomerang - "that's a great idea, why don't you get started?"

In this talk I'll describe how I got hit by my own Ruby boomerang and wound up maintaining the Ruby FDK for the Fn project (not my day job).

I'll cover:
- why I believe we need open source serverless

- my experience of contributing to open source
- why I still want to be involved
- how I've encouraged others to start
- why you might want to get involved
