Amazon Web Services Developer Chat in Second Life

Second_life_conference_center Many years ago we used to hold weekly developer chats with the AWS community. These chats were fun and informative, even though we used a very limited text-based client.

Now its time to try something new and more interactive!

We will hold our first-ever Amazon Web Services Developer Chat in Second Life on Wednesday, May 30th at 10 AM SLT (Second Life Time – the same as PST). Schedules permitting, I am planning to conduct these meetings every week.

The meeting will take place in the Conference Center (pictured at right) on the new Amazon Developers Islands. If you are already a registered Second Life user, search the map for Developers and then choose the island labeled “Amazon Developers 1.”

If you are not a Second Life user, come on in and join the fun! Start out by registering. Create your avatar,  learn to navigate, move around and to chat, and you’ll be all set. If you have trouble finding the island, send me an IM and I will reply with a teleport request.

Please feel free to visit and to hang out on the islands. Take a ride on the tour boat, and explore all the nooks and crannies.

While you are logged in, be sure to join the Amazon Developer Island Guest group so that you can receive notification of future events.

We are currently planning to hold demos, presentations, talks, and regular chats there. Your ideas are certainly welcome. We’ve even got a marketplace where AWS developers can post their AWS-powered applications (more on that in a little bit).

Also, please do feel free to look me up in-world, where I go by Jeffronius Batra.

See you tomorrow!
