Class: Getting Started with AWS

About The Class

We've been talking about AWS for quite some time now... but maybe you're still not sure how to get started with it.

Please bring your laptop and join us for this free introductory class where you will learn (among other things):

• How to create an AWS account

• How to use IAM to create an admin account

• How to start a free, secure EC2 instance

• ...Now what?! (ideas on what to do with your beautiful new system!)


There is a lot to cover, so we are going to start right at 9 am. Please try to arrive by 8:45 am to check in, grab a coffee, and be ready to go!


Jon Gallagher has been an enthusiastic user of AWS since 2006. Jon is the CTO/Solutions Architect for Nube de Helado Software, Inc., a cloud consulting company and a standard consulting partner of the AWS Partner Network.

    This was a great overview session. Jon and Marian put together an easy-to-understood yet detailed intro into the complex (overwhelming at first?) AWS world! Thanks again.

    Some housework got delayed on me at the last minute and now I've got contractors coming on Saturday. Bummed to be missing this!

      Sorry you can't make it, Paul! Maybe another time. Good luck with the housework :)
