Amazon HQ housewarming for techies

Amazon.com is inviting the Seattle tech community to its first “technology open house” on Sept. 28.

Unlike Facebook’s recent open house, there is no puzzle required for entry, although visitors are likely to get an AWS sales pitch.

It’s billed as a chance to see the company’s new South Lake Union campus, mingle and hear from Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, who will deliver a keynote at 6:15.

The doors open at 5:30 p.m. at the Van Vorst Building at 426 Terry Ave. N. Registration began today at Amazon Web Services site, and the company expects it will fill up quickly.

Here’s a picture of the new campus taken a few minutes ago, from an upper floor of The Seattle Times main building. The Van Vorst building is the short building on the right with a brick facade.
