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 teach at LinkedIn Learning and egghead, and founded AWS Newbies and Cloud Newbies. I wrote Freelance Finance 101 and Intro to AWS for Newbies. I miss New York City and Soup Dumplings.

I write lifestyle articles, technical articles, and books. Sometimes, I’m a Blogger, YouTuber, Twitch Affiliate, and Podcaster.

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.

I love reading! Here are my favorite books I highly recommend! I also partake in annual reading challenge at GoodReads!
