What we're about

If you're interested in presenting at one of our Meetups or hosting one, please contact Nathan Menge. The link to his profile is here:


From their web site: "Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering computing power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow."

In the Pittsburgh area and interested in learning AWS or expanding upon your existing knowledge? This is the place to be. Let's get together, help each other learn, get some work done, and expand our skill set.

I created this group on February 20, 2018, when a search for Pittsburgh AWS user groups turned up nothing. It seemed as though there was a need to be filled, so I decided to fill it. I hope we all find this group to be beneficial.

Thanks for being here!

John Mihaljevic & Nathan Menge

P.S. If you'd like to help offset some of our expenses, your donation would be appreciated. This is NOT required, of course, but if you'd like to help, I won't stop you from doing so. :)

Meetup charges $15/month. If we collect a total of more than $15/month from our members, every extra dollar will find its way back to the group in some form. Probably in the form of refreshments at meetups (if they're not provided by our hosts ), or whatever else we may come up with.

If you care to pitch in, you can do so using the link below. Thanks very much!
