Santa Cruz Works is hosting our first Amazon Web Services Offices Hours event!
Cosponsored by Santa Cruz Tech Beat, Cruzio Internet, and Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup.
Ever heard of cloud computing? This is for anyone considering or already using AWS.
Come join AWS Solutions Architect Tom “Elvis” Jones for an informal presentation and Q&A session. We’ll provide an overview of our web services and recap the announcements from AWS re:Invent 2016. We’ll also 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 host an open time Q&A session.
Join us at this not-to-be-missed chance to interact with the local team in person. This event is free, but registration is required!
