Heads Up – AWS News Blog RSS Feed Change

TL;DR – If you are using the ancient Feedburner feed for this blog, please change to the new one (https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/feed/) ASAP.

Back in the early days of AWS, I paid a visit to the Chicago headquarters of a cool startup called FeedBurner. My friend Matt Shobe demo’ed their new product to me and showed me how “burning” a raw RSS feed could add value to it in various ways. Upon my return to Seattle I promptly burned the RSS feed of the original (TypePad-hosted) version of this blog, and shared that feed for many years.

FeedBurner has served us well over the years, but its time has passed. The company was acquired many years ago and the new owners are now putting the product into maintenance mode.

While the existing feed will continue to work for the foreseeable future, I would like to encourage you to use the one directly generated by this blog instead. Simply update your feed reader to refer to https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/feed/ .
