Amazon Web Services

9 months ago I accepted a job offer with Amazon Web Services.

I haven’t posted anything since. Partly because the new job required moving across the country, and partly because I’m much busier now than I was before. Seattle is expensive, and people with families generally live east of Seattle and commute in. I commute about an hour each way. That makes my work day about 11 hours. More if things get busy. But the tech and the people are absolutely incredible. I accepted the job because this kind of scale isn’t available anywhere else. There’s a reason Google and Facebook started calling it ‘Cloud Scale'.
