What happened at the AWS London Summit (7th July)? Come and find out! Our good friends at Metail are again hosting us for what is shaping up to be a fantastic session.

We're covering AWS Lambda (and its role in serverless computing) from end to end. We have with us Danilo Poccia from Amazon Web Services, the author of AWS Lambda in Action (, published by Manning Publications, who'll be covering Lambda from the mobile context, Ben Taylor, who'll be talking about using Lambda with CloudFormation, and Daniel Vaughan, who will be talking about his experiments with Lambda.

Please try to be prompt, as we've got a very full schedule this time! Doors open 6:45pm, for a start at 7:00 sharp!

The presentations:

• Notices and news - Jon Green (Adeptium Consulting)

• AWS London Summit Brief Debrief - Jon Green

• Using Lambda and CloudFormation - Ben Taylor

• Experiments with Lambda - Daniel Vaughan

• Building Event-driven Serverless Applications - Danilo Poccia (Amazon Web Services)

To get here:

Metail's based at Janus House, which wraps around and above a Maplin store. The entrance is to the right of Maplin

By car:

Park at Queen Anne's Car Park on Gonville Place, walk across Parker's Piece opposite, towards the University Arms (big hotel, lots of scaffolding and building works at the moment), and then along St Andrew's St. in the same direction.

Or park at any Park and Ride car park, take the bus into town, and get off at Drummer Street. Walk down Emmanuel St. to St Andrew's St., turn left, and it's about 200yds on the left.

By train:

To Cambridge Station, then walk down Station Road to Hill's Road junction. Turn right, and it's about a mile's walk. Or catch the Citi 1, Citi 3 or Citi 8 (or 1A) bus from the Station, towards town - the bus stops are to the left, as you exit the station. Get off when you see a Maplin on the right!

By bus:

Too many bus routes serve the area to cover here: quite a lot of them stop just outside. Check the Cambridge Buses ( website for details.
