The real issue is that AWS isn't designed as a tool for product developers. Product developers get asked to use it but do not usually have a clue about good systems engineering. AWS was designed for ops and systems engineers first and foremost.

Yeah that line is blurring, too.


That may have been true 5 years ago, but a lot of the newer services require developers to just read the documentation, not have a serious amount of background in the setup of the service they are using. Look at things like ECS and Lambda for compute, SQS for messaging etc.
