Tweet of the week is from Corey Quinn, who for all the snark he aims at AWS, still find it in his heart to say something nice about any AWS team, it’s a really good thread:
Give me an @awscloud service, product, or team and I will say something nice about them in this thread if it kills me.

My book recommendation this week is The Big Short - Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis. The book that got turned into the movie, I’m a big fan of both.
The Big Short looks at the housing crisis, its contributing factors (eg. corporate greed), its effects and at the few people who saw it coming and made a killing on it by shorting mortgage bonds and derivative products. It’s a book that got me interested in taking a closer look at economics and that warrants a 5/5 ⭐️.
