Drew and James open the show with a chat about some DevOps tools. As well as some shortcuts to spinning up new servers. The guest this week is Chris Richardson, a Software Development Manager at Amazon (AWS) on the RDS (Relational Database Service) team. The interview starts at 16:41.
Chris was born and raised in BC, so naturally, he has a ton of history in the province. He went to SFU, worked for a couple startups in town, spent some time at Hootsuite, and ultimately landed at Amazon Vancouver on the RDS team.
Most people have heard of AWS (Amazon Web Services) before, but you probably haven't heard about the culture and work life at the company itself. If you are interested in RDS or you want a peek behind the curtain at one of the most successful technology companies, don't miss this one!
Amazon is hiring at their Vancouver office, so be sure to check their job posts out!
