AWS is Streaming Live on Twitch

Voiced by Polly

Twitch is one of the leading community streaming video platforms today for developers, gamers, and the artists. Each day, millions visit Twitch to watch and discuss their passions by joining live sessions with other passionate online streamers. Amazon Web Services has joined the fun by adding the AWS Twitch Channel this past November to bring the latest AWS technologies to the Twitch audience. The AWS Twitch Channel hosts weekly live interactive coding and maker sessions targeted toward all levels of cloud enthusiasts.  For more information on upcoming episodes, past broadcasts, or to meet the team, visit

The AWS Twitch channel will have multiple shows throughout the year, each with various themes, broadcasters, and topics. Currently, there are two shows available for you to tune into; Live Coding with AWS and AWS Maker Studio show.

The Live Coding with AWS show features fellow technical evangelists; Randall Hunt, Julio Faerman, and Abby Fuller building apps and solutions covering practically every AWS service from the perspective of the developer. What’s great about being part of the Twitch audience for the show is that you drive the direction of the broadcast.  Additionally, guests from Amazon, AWS, and the community will join our Twitch hosts to talk about cool new projects and implementations built on the AWS platform.

The AWS Maker Studio show premieres on May 17th and will cover projects and solutions especially for the Maker in all of us. The hosts; Todd Varland, Trevor Hykes, and Anupam Mishra will be building a cloud-connected robot over the course of the first season. Watch the first episode to see the first steps, and consider following along and building your own robot.
