The AWS Hero program recognizes a vibrant, worldwide group of AWS experts whose enthusiasm for knowledge-sharing has a real impact within the community. Heroes go above and beyond to share knowledge via social media, blog posts, open source projects, events, and user groups.
Rolf Koski, Cybercom AWS Business Group CTO and AWS Ambassador was nominated as an AWS Hero in September.
“I am honoured and hope to be able to be worthy of this title, now and in the future. Big thanks for communities and peers - I would not be here without you”, Rolf wrote in his social media update.
This is a great recognition, and the whole Cybercom Maker family feels very proud working with such a talented and inspirational colleague.
Rolf, you are very passionate about the work you do. What does this recognition mean to you professionally?
- I guess the biggest benefit in being part of the Heroes is to get a global access to a very select group of individuals, which I would not have the possibility to interact otherwise. The input from the discussions among this group of people is a resource, which would be very difficult, if not impossible, to attain otherwise. And I am not only talking about the other Heroes, but AWS evangelists and product teams, which I have the possibility to interact with directly. Naturally it is a two-way street – so I try also to contribute as much as possible inside this community we have.
And to our clients? How does this reflect to them?
- Naturally as my expertise and activities in the AWS community are now more publicly recognized, it helps the clients also to appreciate the communications channels and networks of people I have at my disposal. It helps me also to vocalize the hopes and wishes the clients for example have for certain products or features and put some gravity on those messages towards AWS.
Once more, congratulations Rolle for being an AWS Hero!
