We’re pleased to announce that Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN) has named Martijn van Dongen as an APN ambassador.
APN ambassadors are technical experts in the APN consulting partner ecosystem. They are passionate about contributing their technical knowledge to the community through public speaking engagements, blog posts, and white papers. An APN ambassador possesses deep expertise in the AWS platform, AWS certifications and is an active employee of an APN consulting partner.
Martijn van Dongen initiated the AWS cloud practice within Xebia, which launched Binx.io, a new cloud company. This effort also earned Xebia Group the status of AWS advanced consulting partner. In 2017, van Dongen passed his final exam so now holds all the core AWS certifications. He also founded a new AWS Amsterdam community by organizing monthly meetups.
The APN ambassadors program was announced to a small group during the AWS re:Invent 2017 event. With the start of this program, less than ten APN ambassadors are selected within EMEA. Stay tuned for more announcements regarding the APN ambassadors program and our contributions to the AWS community in terms of articles, blog posts, public speaking and meetups.
