Hi everyone, I'm a Co-Founder of Vantage: an alternative AWS console with a focus on developer experience and cost transparency.

Before Vantage I worked as a product manager at AWS on Container Services and a product manager at DigitalOcean for their compute product (Droplets).

Happy to be here!

Hey everyone! Founder of Atomized here - we're building a platform that helps developers deploy applications faster in AWS (and soon other cloud providers). In my past life, I spent over a decade working as a DevOps engineer and doing cloud architecture. Super excited to be part of this AWS community.

Hi everyone, I'm the CTO at Leadent Digital - I lead a team of TypeScript developers creating products for companies that provide field service. All our products are deployed to AWS and we like to take a serverless-first approach. Looking forward to sharing what we've learned so far and learning stuff from the experts here.

Hello everyone. I am a network engineer at a local ISP and always dreamed of working with cloud technologies as well.

During my free time I used AWS in order to familiarize myself with cloud concepts and for their exams, but eventually ended up launching a few small services too. Here's hoping to continue using it for a lot more in the future :-) #freeAWScredits
