What we're about


The Jozi AWS User Group (AWS-JOZI) is a AWS User Group which meets monthly on the 3rd Monday of every month in and around the Johannesburg area.

A face-to-face AWS user community based in Johannesburg. Proposed topics will about the technical aspects of AWS feature use and implementation, and will feature real-world use cases including what hasn't worked as well as what has. Join if you're a cloud evangelist in your organisation, you design implement or service AWS based solutions, or you would just like to get started!
