I am working out the AWS stuff and just thinking that people may want to set up their own specific environments. I can set up some basic instances ready for the evening, but I am worried they may not be used as people will have their own flavours / recommendations.
I'm thinking, if I give out my amazon username and password for this weekend people can set themselves up with whatever they need (apart from a supercomputing cluster). Failing that if people want to use their own resources and send me an invoice, I am hoping to raise some sponsorship to cover the costs of this event in the long run, which I will claim back.
I know it is me being a bit lazy but I think this may be the best approach as I have not had much feedback over requirements.
What do you think?
