What we're about

A meetup group to coordinate a face-to-face AWS user community. Proposed topics will be more 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, and you design implement or service AWS based solutions.

All abilities are welcome, but be prepared to get in-depth!
