Taking the cloud offline - a meetup group to get real people into a real place to discuss virtual stuff. We'll be running quarterly meetups focusing on hands-on labs, talks and discussions around best-practice implementation across the AWS offering. Join if you're a cloud specialist in your organisation, a developer or simply interested in learning. All abilities are welcome, but be prepared to get in-depth.

Code of conduct
Like a large number of other communities, we have an anti harassment policy and code of conduct (https://www.meetup.com/AWS-Leeds-User-Group/pages/28419639/Code_of_Conduct/), in order to support the inclusive nature of our events. It is necessary for all attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at any AWS Leeds to agree with the code of conduct.
Helping with diversity and inclusivity
The organising team for AWS Leeds are keen to promote diversity and inclusivity, in terms of speakers, how events are run and even potentially the composition of the organising team. If you would like to contribute to this aim, particularly if you think you have experiences that you might not consider to be typical for the majority of the tech community, we would be really excited to talk with you at the event.
