What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in AWS. Every 3 to 4 weeks a meetup will be organized. This is an AWS meetup, so at least 70% of the talks are about AWS technology or automating, securing, optimizing AWS services.

Code of conduct

• Every 2 to 4 weeks a meetup will be planned.

• Talks should be at least 70% about AWS technology. Talks should not contain any marketing. We would like to see and approve the slide deck or other details about your talk, upfront. People should be able to learn from your presentation and use the knowledge, learnings, inspiration, without having to buy your product or service.

• We kindly ask you to add a picture and your full name to your profile. If you have no picture, no history, and no real name, you cannot subscribe to meetups.

• You have until 3 days before a meetup to unsubscribe, otherwise, your absence is counted as a no-show.

• If you have 2 no-shows, you should not RSVP anymore. You will be moved to the Wait List.

• If you have more than 2 no-shows, you will be removed and blocked from this group. We don't negotiate bans from this group.

• You must be interested in the topics. "Just-eaters" and "sleepers" are not welcome. (We actually have had people who left when the first presentation started, and even some who felt asleep at the first row).

• It’s strictly forbidden to actively recruit (direct approaching). Do a talk, and/or sponsor the location/food, and you are allowed to add one slide and promote your company for 1 minute.

• During meetups, videos and photos are made and shared on social media. If you don’t like it, hide, or don’t come to the meetups.

Catch up the re:Invent! And catch up the latest AWS!

Cupola XS

📓 Summary:
AWS re:Invent is the biggest conference of AWS in the year. The enormous updates are released every year.

2 and 3 years ago, AWS re:Invent was hosted online. AWS re:Invent has been hosted as a mixed(online and offline) conference.
But the scale of the in-person conference (Las Vegas) was small yet.

This year, AWS re:Invent is also a mixed (online and offline) conference. But the offline scale is larger than the last year. So many people go to Las Vegas and bring huge impressions back to their countries.

In this meetup, we will catch up with the latest updates of AWS and talk about it together.

  • 18:45 Registration

🧑‍💻 Talks:

We took my newbie to the re:Invent 2022.
Speaker: Nick de Wijer-Graafstra
(AWS Community Builder & Principal AWS platform architect at SoftwareOne )

I've been to Re:Invent three times now (and have the hoodies to prove it!).
This year was special though! As I took a colleague along for whom it is their first time.
Playing tour-guide for them and seeing the "oohs" and "aahs" was great to experience.

Updates re:Invent from blogging in the world.
Speaker: Tomoharu Ito
(awsug.nl / freelance AWS architect / Alexa Champion Asia)

Just after the re:Invent, many people write blogs about the updates. not only AWS employees but also AWS users.
This is so many blogs and it's hard to follow all of them.
I would introduce some blogs with shortly describes my superior area(serverless, high-layered AI services).


We will arrange some small talk sessions Online and Offline.
