Meet the Newest AWS News Bloggers!

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.News Bloggers
I would like to introduce you to our current l…
