Amazon DevCon – Speaker Index

For the next two days (January 19th and 20th, 2005), is hosting a number of well-known technologists and luminaries at a private event for our software development team.

We will be updating each entry  one or more times during  each talk. Refresh this  page (and the linked pages) to stay current.

We are also going to do our best to accept questions from the world at large throughout each day. Simply log on to our chat application at and submit your questions.
