Amazon Web Services is the industry’s leading cloud computing platform, providing customers with virtually unlimited compute power and storage so that they can cost-effectively deliver enterprise-class solutions. In this keynote, you’ll learn about the benefits of employing the cloud as your network infrastructure, typical use cases for using a cloud computing platform, and how you can use a variety of tools, including Eclipse, to build solutions for AWS. Plus, hear from successful entrepreneur and Chief Geek of Smugmug, Don MacAskill, about Smugmug's use of AWS.
Peter Vosshall is responsible for providing technical leadership for a number of teams in Amazon Web Services, as well as for the company as a whole. Mr. Vosshall has over 17 years of industry experience designing, building, and operating large scale, highly available distributed systems. Since joining Amazon in 1998, he has been a key contributor to Amazon's overall software architecture, and has built a number of core enabling technologies for Amazon's distributed architecture, including Dynamo, Amazon's highly available key-value store. Prior to joining Amazon, Vosshall built scalable and distributed back-ends for collaborative software systems at Apple and Infoseek. He holds a bachelor's degree in computer science from Dartmouth College.

Back in the mists of time, Don built the network that powered eBay, Hotmail, and fatbrain. He lost his mind and spent an exhilirating few years making video games, but found it again with SmugMug. With no outside investment, he bootstrapped SmugMug into a business that's profitable and growing - but most of all, fun!
