Since the excitement of AWS re:Invent 2018, your author has been experimenting with new ways to leverage AWS services to increase efficiencies, speed processes, and reduce costs.

Although I’m an infrastructure engineer and technologist, I’m certainly not a database administrator.

Posted by Avalara

When researching my favorite beverage for National and International Coffee Days (Sept. 29 and Oct. 1), I discovered that coffee hyped up goats in ninth century Ethiopia and was dubbed a “bitter invention of Satan” by 17th century Christian Italians.
