Introducing Our Newest AWS Evangelist – Joe Ziegler (Australia and New Zealand)
Gday! Im Joseph Ziegler and Im excited to tell everybody I am the new Technology Evangelist for Australia and New Zealand!
I grew up in Texas but most of my professional career was based in Silicon Valley and then later in Asia. I helped to create some of the first e-commerce applications way back in the internet 1.0 days. Now Melbourne, Australia is my home.
Of course, I am a big fan of cloud computing. I have developed architectures on several cloud platforms as a software engineer at both large enterprises and at my own start-ups. I know the benefits of cloud computing first hand and I am ready to spread the word.
Deep down I am a programming nerd. I have developed systems in several programming languages, but Python is my passion. You can create solutions quickly using Python, Boto and AWS that just a few years ago would have taken much more time and effort. That combination creates a powerful environment for development, test and deployment. Be watching for Python examples coming from me in the future.
I look forward to meeting many of you at upcoming events and conferences. Feel free to contact me on twitter at @jiyosub. I will also keep my twitter feed up to date with news about AWS, my schedule, and anything I find relevant to Australia and New Zealand cloud computing.
P.S., my dog Flash is also a big fan of AWS
