AWS User Group North #28
Our first-up speaker for this meetup is Phil Clegg from, who delivered this talk at re:invent last year. The title of his talk is: 'Powering large-scale full-text search for the UK Government Web Archives using Amazon Elasticsearch Service “How we indexed 120 terabytes of data in 10 hours”' For our second speaking slot we have Ann Ledwith and Adrian Pease from Sage: 'The road to continuous delivery with AWS serverless can be filled with potholes and blind alleys. Here's some we found, do you have any more?' Our food and drink sponsors for this evening are "Portworx is the solution for running stateful containers in production, designed with DevOps in mind. With Portworx, users can manage any database or stateful service on any infrastructure using any container scheduler, including Kubernetes, Mesosphere DC/OS, and Docker Swarm. Portworx solves the five most common problems DevOps teams encounter when running stateful services in production: persistence, high availability, data automation, security, and support for multiple data stores and infrastructure."

What we're about

This is the Amazon Web Services user group for Manchester, England. Anyone and everyone with an interest in the cloud is welcome.

Whilst independent from Amazon, we frequently feature talks by AWS staff as well as fellow AWS users who share their experience and expertise with the group. We're keen to hear from members what topics they'd like to cover in meetings. There's usually a free bar, always good speakers, and the opportunity to network with like-minded people.

Want to speak at the group?
Do you have an AWS or cloud related story, a recent major project to share your experience of, special expertise in the field or even just some tips to share? If so, we'd love to have you as a speaker at one of our future meetups! Get in touch with an organiser, read our speaker guidelines ( or fill in our form: Click here (
