AdvancedAWS: July Meetup

Awesome speakers + amazing venue = one great meetup. That is exactly what we have for July.


Adrian Cockcroft (@adrianco), former architect at Netflix, now Technology Fellow at Battery Ventures will discuss what it means to be cloud native, what are the trends he is seeing and where will AWS be in 5 years.

Tim Prendergast (@auxome), Founder & CEO of, and ex-Adobe cloud architect will present "Effective Incident Response in AWS" - No matter who you are or what you do, you will eventually become the victim of a malicious attack or security incident. Fortunately, the extensive tools available within AWS actually provide superior incident response capabilities to those we used to have in the traditional datacenter model. We'll cover several common attack scenarios, response strategies that actually work, and post-attack procedures that everyone can execute.

    In support of this event, I wanted to offer anyone attending the chance to get free parking for the evening.
    My company is doing valet parking on-demand, and we want to invite attendees into our beta, and allow you to park for free the night of the meetup.

    You can get access here:
    And use promo code "AWS" to get $25 in Luxe parking credits.

    Hope this can make it easier for some to attend the event!

      Craig, a bunch of us ride... how are you with motorcycle valet? :)

      July 22, 2014

    • Craig M.

      Haha, this might be the first request for motorcycle parking. Our valets can do stick, but we don't test them for motorcycle . . . I would suggest parking your bike yourself to be safe :)

    Will this meetup be video taped and made available afterwards? What about slides?

    July 21, 2014

    • Peter S.

      No amount of video will compare with seeing the Autodesk Gallery in person. We don't record our talks so that speakers don't feel restricted in what they can say. Slides will likely be posted after.
