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 * 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!
