How technical is it?

It's aimed at people who want to understand AWS on a technical level or start using AWS services themselves. Presales engineers, solutions architects, implimentors and technically minded business people will be comfortable with the content.

A free training event - what's the catch?

We are the only AWS distributor in Africa, and our role is to get partners enabled as well as customers ready to go on AWS. So there's no catch!

Who can attend?

Partners (Systems Integrators, MSPs, VARs, ISPs, ISVs, technical consultants and resellers in general) as well as end-customers are all welcome.

What can I bring into the event?

Just bring youself - everything else is provided.

What's the dress code?

It's your brain we need to be smart, not your clothes. Come as you are, most are business casual to jeans and T's.

What should I expect on arrival?

You'll find yourself at reception first - just let the team at the desk know you're there for the AWS training and they'll call us to escourt you to the AWS boardroom.

Will you feed me?

Of course! We'll have muffins and the like during the training and coffee/cappuccinos whenever you feel like one. Lunch is also provided - as long as we can order it online. On a site that runs on AWS, of course.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

email us ( or call us on 0115402640

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes, but please let us know in advance. It's free by the way, so if you paid a fee you registered for something else!
