For this meetup, we are ending 2018 in a flash of lightning talks and giving away $1000 in AWS credits in the spirit of the holidays. As usual, $500 in credits will be given as a raffled door prize and an additional $500 will be raffled to one of the ten lightning talk participants.

Would you like to be one of the lightning talk participants? We are looking for ten volunteers to each tell a story about something they've found exciting about working with AWS condensed into a hard-stop 3 minutes. No slides necessary. Each participant will get a special raffle ticket for a chance to win $500 in AWS credits! If you would like to participate in the lightning talks, let me know as soon as possible.

1. Russel Heimlich
2. Johnny Boursiquot: Serverless Lens of the Well Architected Framework
3. Leela Subramaniam: Lambda Layers and WebSockets on API Gateway
4. Steve Causey?
5. Eric Haupt: AWS Well-Architected Tool
6. Nicki Sonpar: Why cloud security is a lot like home security.
