What we're about

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.
