Q&A with Sean Doyle
What does an AWS APN ambassador do?
AWS APN Ambassadors exhibit technical expertise and depth within the AWS Platform and actively contribute their technical knowledge to the community by contributing to white papers, blog posts, public speaking, training engagements and innovation.
How did you become involved in this?
I was nominated by my manager, Long Le. To be a part of the program, you must be nominated by another Ambassador or AWS resource. When I first got into learning about cloud technologies, AWS was at the top of my list. Multiple certifications later, I'm a big fan of AWS and the multitude of services it has to offer. To be able to communicate and actively participate to the growing community of cloud technologists is very exciting. While I enjoy building out AWS solutions, I really enjoy advising and empowering people to use them as well. Being named an AWS APN ambassador is a great motivation to continue doing so, and to continue delivering great solutions to our customers and the community at large.
