AWS Office Hours

Looking back at the past 10 years there have been lots of people who had an impact on me. Some of them probably have no idea but I don’t think I would have the experience today if it weren’t for their help and assistance over the years. Finding ways to give back can be challenge especially during a pandemic with limited human interaction. Typical venues such as conferences and meetups are now virtual, and, while still useful, the ability to causally connect with peers is much more difficult. The conference events were a great time to bounce ideas with people in your industry.

Because I enjoy AWS and because I want to try to give back to the community I am making myself accessible for what I’m calling “AWS office hours.” Whether you’re an AWS beginner or a seasoned user stumped by some problem, schedule 30 minutes with me and we’ll talk through it. No charge, no recordings, nothing like that. It will just be a casual conversation where we discuss your AWS challenge and I’ll try to help you find a solution through it. We’ll talk about what you’re up against and discuss what you have tried and what you could try! My hope is we’ll have a productive and enjoyable conversation. 

I try to prioritize students and those newer to AWS so if you aren’t one of those then please just schedule out a week or two to leave the more immediate times open.

Schedule some time and please put in a short description of what you want to talk about and a link to your LinkedIn profile just so I can be a little bit prepared. (I want to make the best use of our 30 minutes!) And if it’s a topic area I know nothing about I’ll let you know ahead of time so you don’t waste your time. I just want to try to help others as so many have done for me.

I have been working with AWS for 10+ years. I (currently) have 11 AWS certifications. I got my first one back in 2014. I have at least touched nearly every AWS service.  I am a 2021 AWS Community Builder I have created many cloud-native applications on AWS along with scalable data ingest pipelines. I’m a software engineer (later DevOps engineer) at heart with most of my experience being in Java and .NET, though my .NET skills by now are probably somewhat eroding. I have a working knowledge of other languages like Python and Go. Bash is my best friend. I also have a few GCP certifications in case we need to consider alternatives to your challenges.

Schedule some time!
