He is the creator of [SimplePie](http://simplepie.org) and [AWS SDK for PHP](https://aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-php/), patented [multifactor-authentication-as-a-service](https://patents.google.com/patent/US20160241536A1/en?inventor=Ryan+Parman) at [WePay](https://wepay.com), defined much of the CI/CD and SRE disciplines at [McGraw-Hill Education](https://www.mheducation.com), and came up with the idea of “[serverless, event-driven, responsive functions in the cloud](https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/)” while at [Amazon Web Services](https://aws.amazon.com) in 2010. Ryan's aptly-named blog, [Flailing Wildly](https://ryanparman.com), is where he writes about ideas longer than [280 characters](https://twitter.com/skyzyx). Ambivert. Curious. Not a coffee drinker.
