Corey is the Chief Cloud Economist at The Duckbill Group, where he specializes in helping companies improve their AWS bills by making them smaller and less horrifying. He also hosts the "Screaming in the Cloud" and "AWS Morning Brief" podcasts; and curates "Last Week in AWS," a weekly newsletter summarizing the latest in AWS news, blogs, and tools, sprinkled with snark and thoughtful analysis in roughly equal measure.
[00:00:09] Corey: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud. I’m Corey Quinn, and my guest today is someone that I have been subtly, and then not so subtly, and then outright demanding, appear on this show for a long time now. Andrew Shieh is a principal engineer at SmugMug slash Flickr slash whatever else you’ve acquired recently. Andrew, thanks for joining me.
[00:00:31] You have been someone who’s been a notable presence in the AWS community for far longer than I have. You’ve been in your current role for 12 years at this point, and you’ve been around the edges of a lot of very interesting AWS problems as a result. At one point, SmugMug was the largest S3 customer that I was aware of, back when S3 launched. Weren’t you the first customer, or something like that?
