Cloud computing with Amazon Web Services is thriving right here in Santa Cruz based on the number of attendees and local presenters at the June Santa Cruz New Tech MeetUp. On December 6, 2016, Santa Cruz Works will host the first of a series of AWS Office Hours. Local organizations and developers are invited learn more about the trends, tools and services that make cloud computing so exciting. AWS Office Hours are designed for anyone curious about or already using AWS.
Heather Putnam, Executive Director at Santa Cruz Works, says “Our mission is to connect the local tech community with capital, people and skills. We’re delighted to bring these local experts from the global leader in cloud computing to the Santa Cruz community.”
Presentation and Q&A
AWS Solutions Architect Tom “Elvis” Jones will offer an informal presentation followed by an open Q&A session. Tom will provide a basic overview of the AWS portfolio and also recap the announcements from AWS re:Invent 2016, Amazon’s big trade show in Las Vegas that runs Nov. 27- Dec. 2, 2016. Then he’ll take a look at Serverless Computing, and how to build applications using AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon IoT, AWS Cognito, and the Amazon Alexa Skills Kit and other AWS services. Finally, we’ll do our best with your questions on anything and everything.
