Wellington September 2022 Meet-Up –

General Overview of AWS – 100 Level

This month we have Seb Krueger, Principal Solution Architect at AWS and Scott Patterson, Senior Solution Architect at AWS running the session.

The community has asked for a ‘basic overview of AWS’ session, so we are delivering our first 100-level beginners session.

We will be looking at the initial services that most customers start with on their journey to AWS. These will include a high level overview of the Amazon Cloud, Compute, Storage, Networking, and Databases.

If you are a little bit technical and have been wanting to understand what AWS is all about, this session is for you.

After attending this session, you will be able to champion the value of AWS, and understand the foundational services from AWS; even if you are not yet an expert in AWS.

This is a 100 level session, but it is technical. The session is intended to be interactive, so bring your questions. There will be whiteboards available.
