The AWS User Group Finland is for people interested in all aspects of the Amazon Web Services (AWS). This user group mainly operates in the Southern Finland area (Helsinki, Turku and Tampere) but can organize events in other regions of Finland as well, if need be. Everyone regardless of their geographical location is welcome to join the group.
You really don't need to be an expert on AWS to participate. We hope that everyone can be a part of this group and share information, experiences and knowledge about AWS.
Main purpose of this group it to get together as much as possible. Let's have nice meetups!
You can use hashtag #awsfinmeetup in social medias when sharing content about our events!
AWS Community Nordics in collaboration with AWS is proud to announce the first ever AWS GameDay Nordics. Join us on this opportunity which is rarely available hosted in public setting. The event is a Nordic wide virtual event and available to be joined by any AWS Community members.
The event takes place on Tuesday May 11th, 2021. Check the local starting time from your local meetup event. The event lasts for approximately four hours, but you are free to stay as long as you can. The GameDay will hosted by AWS Senior Developer Advocate, our very own Gunnar Grosch.
AWS GameDay is an interactive team-based learning exercise designed to give players a chance to put their AWS skills to the test in a real-world, gamified, risk-free environment. Most importantly, it is an extremely fun way to learn more about the potential of AWS without the step-by-step instructions provided in workshops or classroom-style sessions. If you are seeking an open-ended, and at times ambiguous, style of training then GameDay is the perfect challenge for you.
You will need to be able to access Amazon Chime, via either the desktop app or through the browser. Test your setup in advance, so there is no unintended chaos on the day. An AWS account is not required, one will be provided to your team on your welcome session on the day but you will need a web browser with access to the AWS Console. It would be advantageous for you to be familiar with the AWS Console before you attend the GameDay.
