About this Event

Welcome back to another much-anticipated AWS Community Day - a free full-day conference. See what the rest of the AWS user community has been up to. Share what you have learned with them. Network with your peers to establish new relationships and strengthen old ones. And while you are there, meet our valued sponsors who offer cutting edge tools to enhance your AWS experience.

The AWS Community Day, like no other, allows people in a region to come together and connect with each other without the hustle and bustle of re:Invent and re:Inforce. In a typical year, this is a full day event with plenty of food and time between breakout sessions to walk around and network, or sit down around a table and discuss the finer points of serverless to your hearts content. But this year due to the novel corona virus, the conference will be online. But the networking opportunities still abound.

The AWS Community Day Bay Area will be hosted on LoudSwarm.com. Here are some key highlights:

  1. This will not be a simple zoom meeting. There will be three tracks of talks simultaneously (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and attendees can switch between them.
  2. Attendees will all be required to be on slack. This gives you an opportunity to engage live with the sponsors and other attendees. Because of the asynchronous nature of slack, you can then continue these conversations over slack even after the event.
  3. During the talks each track will have a sli.do where attendees can ask questions live. We will have volunteers monitoring the questions and asking them to the speakers right after or during the talk in real-time.
  4. Just like in an in-person conference, where right after the talk the audience gets to ask questions in an informal aside, there will be a video call dedicated to the speaker and audience of each talk right after the talk at the click of a button.
  5. Fifteen minutes after each talk is done, the video of the talk will be processed and available for you to watch if you had had to watch something else during the original live telecast.
  6. If you arrive late for the talk, you will be able to join live and then rewind to the beginning or watch from any part as you wish.
  7. You can chat with speakers and sponsors live via slack. And of course you can network via slack again in hallway tracks.
