I was in Home Depot yesterday and saw one of my ex-Microsoft friends who joined Amazon Web Services 4 years ago when people weren't familiar with the term Cloud Computing. We had a quick catch-up in between Grill Aisle and Lawn Mowers. I told him how I blogged about AWS having 100 job openings. Curious I checked today and there were 147 US jobs and 19 Int'l jobs for AWS.
Think about it if you assume AWS is staffing up and the open headcount represents 20% of the job positions, there are 664 AWS current employees.
Here are the latest presentations that AWS team uses.
- Brief Overview of Security
- Architecting for the Cloud
- AWS and the Enterprise
- Securing the AWS Cloud
- Lessons Learned Before AWS
- The Cloud as a Platform
- Migrating Internal IT Apps to the AWS Cloud

I need to make a point of visiting Amazon Web Services in its new building. It's much easier to visit by public transit than the current HQ.
Amazon.com Begins Moving Into New SLU Headquarters
South Lake Union’s newest neighbor has arrived! After much anticipation, Amazon.com employees began moving into the first phase of their new headquarters this week. The entire headquarters will be opening in phases until 2013, and Amazon’s total footprint in SLU is about 2 million square feet.
Many of you who live and work in the area have likely seen the first buildings taking shape along Terry Avenue, with more buildings still under construction. The first phase that was just completed includes three new buildings plus the historic Van Vorst Building (which in its past life used to serve as a stable for delivery-wagon horses). The public plaza also features a striking piece of mosaic artwork created by local artist Ann Gardner.
