Brian Vallelunga loves to build things – products, companies, or silly things on the side. In Elementary school, he was asked by one of his friends, “why can’t you put a movie on your phone?”. This got Brian’s mind racing, and he went home, ripped a movie into the specific format for his flip phone, and shared it immediately with his friend. Post that, he competed in science fairs, even at the state level. One of the projects, he built a craft that was lighter than a fingernail, and flew without wings or engines.
Brian led a portion of the engineering team at Uber, after inserting himself as an intern into the right meetings, which awarded him interesting projects. At the same time, he was building a crypto marketplace on the side, but struggling to get it launched. After taking a trip to reset, his mind kept coming back to a problem he faced while attempting to launch the marketplace – and it was surrounding managing environment variables and secrets. And his community of developers confirmed the need.
