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.
