Startup Weekend and AWS
Amazon Web Services is a global technology sponsor of Startup Weekend in 2013. Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups.
AWS Offering for Startup Weekend Participants
All Startup Weekend participants will receive $100 in AWS credits that they can use over the weekend to begin building applications. It only takes a few minutes to get started:
Step 1: Sign up for AWS (if you are already signed up, skip to Step 2)
The sign-up process requires a credit card which will not be charged until your usage exceeds the credit amount. Note that all new AWS accounts are also eligible for our free usage tier.
