Who should attend?

These introductory events are geared towards those who are new to AWS and those evaluating the various AWS services on offer, for use in their business.

As well as general introductory sessions, outlining the key foundations and infrastructure associated with AWS’s offerings, there are also a number of breakout sessions throughout the day, under different session tracks.

There are 2 separate tracks; a Technical Track aimed at developers, engineers, system admins and architects and a Business Track geared more towards decision makers and business leaders.

On the technical track you can learn more about things like AWS’s database services, management tools, infrastructure and security. Find out more about AWS offerings such as Amazon EC2, Amazon Redshift, Amazon DynamoDB , Amazon Cloudwatch and more.

Sessions on the business track focus more on best practices for getting started on AWS, cost optimisation and compliance.
