What we're about

Welcome to the Melbourne AWS User Group.

We are group dedicated to the cloud services provided by Amazon Web Services. Because we are specific to AWS we can go deep into some of the technical services provided by AWS and get some great insights into how their services work.

If you want to put your application in the cloud and have already chosen AWS, or if you already have applications in the AWS cloud, then this is a great group to get helpful insights and advice from other group members.

More information is available on our website. (https://melb.awsug.org.au/)

The Melbourne AWS User Group is not affiliated with any organisations and is independent from Amazon.

Melbourne AWS User Group Monthly Meetup

NAB House

Our regular monthly meetup on the last Wednesday of every month. Kicking off at 6:00pm We're back for 2020! Time to kick off another year of AWS related news, events and conversations. During the break we moved our website from Wordpress over to a static site filled with Gatsby. It should be a few dozen times faster now. We've also filled it with a lot of additional information on attending our events or getting involved. Check it out at https://melb.awsug.org.au/ A huge thanks to our friends at Innablr (https://innablr.com.au/) who have signed on for another year as our Gold Sponsor. We could not put these events on without their help and support. For 2020 we're adding a dedicated 10 minute lightning talk slot for first time presenters. So if you have an interesting subject you'd like to talk briefly about, or are interested in getting started as a presenter please get in touch. We also have speaking mentorship available to help you on your way.

Now, thanks to the power and flexibility of AWS and Amazon Connect we can build our own service with no hardware requirements. Not only that, but we can run it for a few cents a day. In this session, Matthew will walk through the process of getting started with Amazon Connect. He will walk through how to build and deploy a call flow as well as interact with several AWS services. Finishing off by walking through how his 1800 dial a joke service works and how much it costs to run. ---- # AWS in China - Charles Bluett Level 100 How, why, and why NOT to use AWS China Regions (Beijing & NingXia). Charles has been working as an IT consultant in China for the past 12 years. In this presentation he'll cover the process of registering to use the China regions, reasons why you might want to do this, and the risks that are involved. He'll also cover the limitations of these regions and the services they are missing. A great introduction to the Chinese regions if you've ever been curious. ---- See you all on the night!
