AWS Meetup - Architecting For The Cloud

Please join the AWS team and learn about architecting scalable, reliable applications for the cloud. You'll learn about monitoring, alarming, automatic scaling, load balancing, replication, and more, direct from AWS Senior Evangelist Jeff Barr.

Since early 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided companies of all sizes with an infrastructure web services platform in the cloud. With AWS companies can requisition compute power, storage, and other services–gaining access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services as business needs dictate.

    Expectations were set for a 3-hour long event (6:30-9:30 as promoted).
    Speaker started talking around 6:50 and about 7:35 the time keeper told him "you just have 5 more minutes." The speaker, who had started paced, smoothly, ended by rushing the final slides. "Well, this would take too long to explain, anyway..."
    I came thinking about learning Best Practices on Architecting for Amazon WS cloud. Clearly to get that, let me know in advance that I can try to learn from something else.
    Made a question but the answer I got gave me the impression that the speaker wasn't much ready for questions.
    Thanks anyway. I still look forward to keep meeting with you and your community, guys.

    Too much to cover in 1 hour. The stuff covered was fine, but then trying to arm wave 10-20 other services in the last 5 minutes didn't work for me.

    I wish the event ran longer and went more in depth. I took away a couple of good points, but felt like we missed out on what could have been presented.

    There is nothing better than learning something new, networking, and enjoying beer and good food. I look forward to more of these events.

    Jeff Barr's Lessons Learned from customers who have designed for the Amazon Cloud was last night's biggest benefit. Nothing speaks more than practical application from others. Both new adopters as well as AWS learns from the customer experience; building upon useful metrics. Another 15 minutes on the presentation would have been helpful, though. The Business Development team was also gracious enough in explaining to me their relationship with the Product Development team.

    Should describe the target audience of the presentation (beginner, intermediate, or advanced). I was looking for more advanced info, but presentation was seemingly an quick introduction for people unfamiliar cloud/system architecture. Also it would be better if the presentation could be longer. I believe it was limited to ~45 minutes, which wasn't enough time to present, or ferret-out, real world specifics.

    The information was great but the presenter didn't have enough time to cover all of his material. It would have been nice to have received soft or hard copies of the material.

    Very rushed. Would be nice if the presentation is an hour instead of just 30 minutes.

    Won't make it, our non AWS cloud website is totally fubared.
