What we're about
Meet highly motivated Cloud enthusiasts across the Greater Philadelphia Area and share Amazon Web Services knowledge. The Greater Philadelphia AWS Users Group (GPAWSUG) meets once every month to discuss the latest capabilities introduced in Amazon Web Services as well as present business cases and real-world examples to the members of the group with the goal to enhance everyone’s adoption of this transformative technology.
The Meetup agenda typically consists of a one hour presentation followed up by open-ended, round table discussions where user group members share their experiences applying AWS capabilities in real-world scenarios. After the presentations and discussions there is usually a happy hour to socialize and interact with group members and speakers.
User group members are encouraged to submit any topic ideas related to AWS along with an abstract to the group organizers. The GPAWSUG is intended to be a collaborative community of AWS end-users sharing knowledge and real-world experiences. We try to avoid sales pitches and presentations around deeply vendor-integrated solutions, unless the group deems the topic valuable from a conceptual standpoint.
Sessions range from introductory to advanced. Everyone is welcome to join this Meetup group.
The GPAWSUG is not intended for use as a marketing or recruiting channel. Vendors of closed-source products may discuss technical or business problems their products solve, but product demos are not permitted. Because AWS is itself a commercial Amazon platform, we will occasionally invite AWS experts employed by Amazon to deliver detailed presentations about AWS products. Developers of open-source AWS-related products will be welcome to present those products and demo away.
