Good work @awscloud. More like this please. @badger is doing incredibly important work.
"AWS has made a one-time payment of $5000.00 USD." thanks @AWS!

Paradoxically, the most useful thing I've learned from listening to @QuinnyPig's Screaming in the Cloud was useful only after I resigned from AWS. It was to hire @JoshDoody as a negotiation salary coach. Highly recommend.

When I said that the infosec community was a trash fire, EVERYONE took issue with it. The good people tried to convince me there were shiny pockets of gold, and the crap people did their best to demonstrate that I was too kind by miles.

Not to diverge too heavy from @awscloud recruiting orthodoxy, but a lot of the employees leaving are sticks. “What’s a stick?” A boomerang that doesn’t come back.

I’m not saying @awscloud has a retention issue, but whenever someone announces they’re going to work there my hobby is messaging leaders at other companies congratulating them on their 2023 hire.

'A person close to Google Cloud said "revenue is not a valid way to measure the success of Anthos."'
Key points from our Google Cloud Anthos story: (w/@amir) - Service generated under $10m this calendar year - person close to Google says “compute under management” metric more important than revenue - Google Cloud talking w/US Bank for $1b cloud deal theinformation.com/articles/…

Thank god I wasn't the only one who read it this way. This may be the worst @awscloud naming of 2021.
