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

- Melbourne AWS User Group #134 - February 2023NAB Events Hub, Melbourne, AL
It seems like just a short time since we had our January event, and I hope everyone who attended had a great time. Apologies for the lack of a stream or recording, there were audio issues and we'll do our best to prevent those this time.
But now we're focused on February! And we've got the topic everyone wants to hear about: AI. Not just one talk, but two of them! We'll start off with Hilton Rosenfeld who will teach us how to use Bedrock to build an AI agent. This is followed by Jason Wood who will show us all about PartyRock, an Amazon Bedrock playground.
As a reminder, we will start with the food and socialising at 6 pm, but the actual contents of the meetup (and live stream) will begin at 6:30.
Our thanks to Mantel Group for their continued sponsorship.
See below for the full agenda. The event will be streamed on YouTube as always:
| 6:00pm | Food and Socialising |
| 6:30pm | Introductions |
| 6:40pm | What's new in AWS |
| 6:55pm | Hilton Rosenfeld: Building an end-to-end Generative AI agent with Bedrock [Level 100] |
| 7:25pm | Jason Wood: AWS PartyRock - and other stuff [Level 100] |
| 7:55pm | Marketplace (Who's Hiring) |
| 8:00pm | Networking + Close |
# Building an end-to-end Generative AI agent with Bedrock
* Hilton Rosenfeld
Learn how to create a simple question and answer system using embeddings and foundation models from Amazon Bedrock with a vector database from DataStax.
# AWS PartyRock - and other stuff
* Jason Wood
This will be a little different to most Melbourne AWS User Group talks. I'll provide an overview of AWS' AI/ML tools, then we'll get interactive with PartyRock! (I hope my wifi works!)
We are always looking for speakers and believe everyone has an interesting talk hiding inside themselves. If you are interested in letting that talk out at a future event you can get in touch at the meetup, on the website, or reach out to one of the organisers on our Slack.
