The Champaign-Urbana AWS User Group will hold its first meeting this Friday (9/28) at noon at Research Park. Miha Kralj from Accenture will be presenting on cloud platform selection. Full details are available on the event Meetup.
This is a community-hosted event which I hope will be interesting and useful to our adoption of cloud technologies here at the University.
Registration is open for the AWS Chicago Summit, which will be held August 1 and 2 at McCormick Place.
Summits are free and include:
- Presentations by Amazon, AWS customers, and partner vendors to help you understand what tools are out there and how they’re being used.
- Workshops which provide guided hands-on experience using AWS products.
- Half-day and full-day bootcamps for certification preparation or deep experience building cutting-edge applications. Note that bootcamps have a registration cost.
I hope we can send plenty of people from the University of Illinois up to Chicago for a day (or two) to take advantage of this opportunity.
