I may have the coolest job in the world.
I work at Amazon.com as the Technical Evangelist for the Amazon Web Services, also known as AWS. I run the Developer Relations Group; I am responsible for all of the activities which “touch” developers in some way. This includes:
- Speaking at conferences and trade shows.
- Supporting developers on the discussion board.
- Preparing the SDK (documentation and code samples).
- Working with strategic partners.
- Working with lots of individual developers.
- Talking to the press
The goal, of course, is to get as many developers signed up and productive with the service as possible. I’ll have a lot more to say about this in the coming weeks and months.
