AWS meetup #12: re:invent 2014

Hello everyone,

I'm very pleased to announce the confirmed details of our next event now including the full and very exciting line-up.

Thursday November 27th, 18:30 for a prompt 19:00 start

We have a wonderful Sponsor, News UK, for this session. They have kindly given us the use of the spectacular 17th floor of the new News UK building at London Bridge next to the Shard. I went for a look recently and the views across London are stunning!

We're going to be well looked after - News UK have also offered beer and pizza refreshments during the evening, and some nibbles on arrival.

We will have a broad theme of looking at the announcements and news from re:Invent in 2014 including new products and services from AWS and the experiences of those who attended. 

Update: Now the speakers have returned from adventuring in Las Vegas, we can now confirm the full speaker line-up.

We have great support form AWS and News UK for the session, with both providing several speakers. We've also tried to make more time for networking at the end.

18:30 : Arrival, nibbles

19:00 : Introduction – Norman Driskell, group organiser

19:05 : Welcome from News UK - Chris Birch, IT Director, News UK

19:10 : Session 1 - Re:Invent announcements - Ian Massingham, Technical Evangelist, AWS

19:50 : Session 2 - Re:Invent takeaways - Darius Aliabadi & Michael Holtby, News UK

      I will be writing up the event and embedding the presentations in the post. Might take a few days, but I will post it here when it's completed. Of course, the presenters might share their slides indepentedly in the interim too.

    The map linked from this event points at completely the wrong location

      Well spotted, Paul - I've fixed it. It's very easy to find, there are even signs to News UK in London Bridge station.

      Yeah, just conscious that some people will blindly follow the map on the meetup app!

    Yep - I'll be at re:invent in Vegas with my colleague Wayne. Looking forward to it! Unfortunately can't make this meetup as clashes with an early -Xmas event. Will try and make WEB304 - so much there to chose from...

      Hope you had a good time out there, Robin.
