Werner_it_conversation Over the last couple of years I have found that listening to podcasts is an effective way to learn and to keep up with what’s happening in the software industry. My car has an iPod interface built in, so I spend a few minutes each morning setting up a playlist for my daily commute.

Last week I listened to Amazon’s Werner Vogels talk about Scalability while walking my dog. In this 27 minute IT Conversations podcast, Werner talks about Amazon as a platform. He also discusses some of the ways that we stress-test our environment. It is a very interesting talk, and I think you will find that listening to it was a good use of your time.
