I wrote my first post for this blog way back in 2004! Over the course of the first decade, the amount of time that I devoted to the blog grew from a small fraction of my day to a full day. In the early days my email inbox was my primary source of information about upcoming launches, and also my primary tool for managing my work backlog. When that proved to be unscalable, Ana came onboard and immediately built a ticketing system and set up a process for teams to request blog posts. Today, a very capable team (Greg, Devin, and Robin) takes care of tickets, platforms, comments, metrics, and so forth so that I can focus on what I like to do best: using new services and writing about them!
Over the years we have experimented with a couple of different strategies to scale the actual writing process. If you are a long-time reader you may have seen posts from Mike, Jinesh, Randall, Tara, Shaun, and a revolving slate of guest bloggers.
I would like to introduce you to our current lineup of AWS News Bloggers. Like me, the bloggers have a technical background and are prepared to go hands-on with every new service and feature. Here’s our roster:
Steve Roberts (@bellevuesteve) – Steve focuses on .NET tools and technologies.
Julien Simon (@julsimon) – Julien likes to help developers and enterprises to bring their ideas to life.
Brandon West (@bwest) – Brandon leads our developer relations team in the Americas, and has written a book on the topic.
Martin Beeby (@thebeebs) – Martin focuses on .NET applications, and has worked as a C# and VB developer since 2001.
Danilo Poccia (@danilop) – Danilo works with companies of any size to support innovation. He is the author of AWS Lambda in Action.
Sébastien Stormacq (@sebesto) – Sébastien works with builders to unlock the value of the AWS cloud, using his secret blend of passion, enthusiasm, customer advocacy, curiosity, and creativity.
We are already gearing up for re:Invent 2019, and can’t wait to bring you a rich set of blog posts. Stay tuned!
