Dr Vogels studied computer science at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and received a PhD in computer science from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands.
He is the author of many conference and journal articles, mainly on distributed systems technologies for enterprise computing systems.
Prior to coming to Amazon, Werner was invited to give a talk on distributed systems for the company’s employees. His first thought was What do they need distributed systems? They sell books online!
After seeing what the Amazonians were working with, he realized Amazon was not an online bookseller, but a tech company by every definition and one that was actually 5-10 years ahead of its time.
One of the reasons for hiring Werner was to insert academic rigour into the way the company wanted to approach scaling.
Now Go Build with Werner Vogels is a documentary series show running on Amazon Prime, where viewers follow Werner as he meets with startups around the globe that are changing the way we live through innovation.
