Hi, my name is Yan Cui, I’m an experienced engineer who has worked with AWS for nearly 10 years.

I have been an architect and lead developer with a variety of industries ranging from investment banks, e-commence to mobile gaming. In the last 2 years I have worked extensively with AWS Lambda in production.

I have been very active in sharing my experiences and the lessons I have learnt, some of my work has even made their way into the Serverless Well-Architected whitepaper published by AWS.

I am polyglot in both spoken and programming languages. I am fluent in both English and Mandarin, and count C#, F#, Scala, Node.js and Erlang amongst programming languages that I have worked with professionally. Although I enjoy learning different programming languages and paradigms, I still hold F# as my undisputed favourite!

I am a regular speaker at user groups and conferences internationally. I am also one of the co-authors of F# Deep Dives by Manning.

In my spare time I keep an active blog at http://theburningmonk.com where I share my thoughts on topics such as AWS, serverless, functional programming and chaos engineering.
