AWS event got a lot of craze among IT folks in Hyderabad. Almost 400 odd IT engineers turned up to this event on Nov17 ,2015 at ITC Kakatiya, Begumpet, Hyderabad. I know most of folks registered for event but delegates are invited based on some selection process by AWS. This post is to give glimpse of how exactly event happened and take aways from the event.
Event started with a welcome note from Chandra balani, Head of Business development. He gave us quick view of AWS history. Chandra said that AWS is available to public from 2006 ,but prior that they used this technology to run Amazon.com site for almost a decade. So AWS has total experience of 20 years in the cloud industry.
The tech part started with Harshith taking the charge. He is a great guy. I remember him from last years AWSomeday event. He carry’s entire event on his shoulders with all technical stuff. He gave deeper understanding of AWS core and application services. Showed how to deploy and automate your infrastructure on the AWS Cloud. We are given a student guide with information on AWS storage, compute ,network and applications.
The event has it’s fun part too. There are lots of contests on twitter with hash tag #AWSomday. There are stalls by AWS partners &experts. AWS experts are really nice in answering most of the questions from delegates. Event ended with goodies presentation to lucky winners and participant certificate to delegates.
