Hiroko Nishimura

Hi! I’m Hiroko, and I’m a content creator with focus on technical instruction and content strategy. I’m also an AWS Community Hero!

I wrote AWS for Non-Engineers at Manning, teach at LinkedIn Learning and egghead, and founded AWS Newbies and Cloud Newbies. You can find my Amazon Web Services related content at aws.hiroko.io. I also wrote Freelance Finance 101 and Intro to AWS for Newbies.

I have a bachelor’s and master’s in Special Education. I write lifestyle articles, technical articles, and books.

I recently picked up photography again, and am a Getty Images and Unsplash Contributor. My portfolio is at 500px. You can check out my art at art.hirokonishimura.com. I sell prints at Society6.
