AWS Evangelist Jeff Barr AWS Glue
Introducing AWS Glue


As the Chief Evangelist for the Amazon Web Services, Jeff gets to tell the AWS story to audiences all over the world. Jeff talks, blogs, record videos, and spreads the word via social media.

His main work product is the AWS Blog which he has been writing since the fall of 2004. In this role, Jeff works with the product teams to create interesting, informative, and technically accurate blog posts to highlight the latest and greatest AWS offerings. Jeff has written over 2,500 posts (well over a million words) and currently average one finished post per calendar day.

In the spring of 2013, Jeff planned and executed an AWS Road Trip. Over the course of three weeks he drove 5,550 miles and spoke to cloud computing enthusiasts in 15 cities across the United States. He made extensive use of social media on this trip, including a daily blog (generated by Octopress and hosted on Amazon S3), time lapse videos, tweets, and more.

Jeff is also the host of The AWS Report, a video show that gives me the opportunity to interview AWS customers, along with business and technical leaders from within the company.
