What we're about

Chicago's premiere AWS community! User-run, user-focused.

The Chicago AWS user group is a user-run, user-focused community in Chicago. We hold monthly, free evening events in the Loop. We rotate host offices and topics (anything but a sales pitch). Events include pizza and drinks up front, introductions, 2 to 3 quality non-sales presentations, then wrap with q&a. See our website: chicagoaws.com
