Using AWS for Mobile Apps

Join us for an overview of newly launched AWS features for mobile developers at the AWS San Francisco Office on September 11 from 4-6:30pm.

Amazon Web Services provides a powerful platform for mobile developers to build flexible, highly scalable, and rapidly deployable applications. In the fast-paced mobile app industry, success can come overnight. So when your app goes viral, you can count on AWS to provide you with the resources you need to meet the demands of millions of new users globally.

AWS recently released several new features that make it even easier for developers to build mobile apps, including Mobile Push with Amazon SNS, Web Identity Federation, and updates to DynamoDB. Join us for an overview of these new capabilities, and learn why the fastest-growing startups build their businesses (and mobile apps!) on AWS.

Networking reception to follow.
