Brian Scanlan mailed me with this blurb, worth blogging for any AWS users in the Dublin area:
Are you a software developer or IT professional working in the Dublin area?
Would you like to learn more about Amazon Web Services?
Amazon spent over ten years developing a world-class technology and content platform that powers Amazon web sites for millions of customers daily. Most people think “Amazon.com” when they hear the work; however developers are excited to learn that there is a separate arm of the company, known as Amazon Web Services or AWS.
Using AWS, developers can build software applications leveraging the same robust, scalable and reliable technology that powers Amazon’s retail business.
Amazon Data Services Ireland are delighted to welcome Simone Brunozzi (simoneb at amazon.com), AWS Evangelist for Europe, to Dublin, where he will give an overview of Amazon Web Services, including S3, EC2 and EBS, SimpleDB and more.
Tuesday 16th September 2008 at 7pm, The Digital Exchange Auditorium, Crane Street, Dublin 8
Maps and directions to the venue are here. Refreshments will be served.
All welcome – but places are limited, so please sign-up by mailing aws-dublin-event at amazon.com before Thursday 11th September.
I have no connection to this; not even sure if I’ll be going, as I went to the last one anyway and it was a bit short on technical tips ;) . But worth blogging anyway.
