Mark Porter (BS '88)

I am at Amazon Web Services these days, working on what is the largest fleet of databases in the world, a far cry from the *.caltech.edu machines we had back in Jorgensen in '88! Distributed system problems, concurrency, and all that cool computer science stuff we studied together are all things we deal with every day; sometimes I have the same look on my face looking at our operations dashboards as I did when I took an AMA95 test... On the personal side, my wife Bonnie and I have five teenage kids now and are loving Seattle; drop by if you're in the area!
