Werner Vogels How to architect applications for the cloud
It was our pleasure to have Amazon.com CTO Dr. Werner Vogels as a speaker at the GameDuell TechTalk in late 2010.
Dr. Werner Vogels is the Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Amazon.com in Seattle, Washington. In charge of driving innovation within the company, Vogels has broad internal and external responsibilities.
He is the only executive (apart from Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos) to speak publicly on behalf of Amazon.com. Vogels was one of the architects behind Amazon’s approach to Cloud Computing, the Amazon Web Service (AWS). Information Week recognized Vogels for his educational and promotional role in Cloud Computing with the 2008 CIO/CTO of the Year award.
Besides Vogels, Jonathan Weiss will was also our guest. Weiss is a Ruby on Rails developer and partner at Peritor GmbH, a Rails consulting and development company in Berlin. Peritor wrote an AWS tool for cluster management and deployment.
