AWS Online Tech Talks – September 2017

As a school supply aficionado, the month of September has always held a special place in my heart. Nothing sets the tone for success like getting a killer deal on pens and a crisp college ruled notebook. Even if back to school shopping trips have secured a seat in your distant memory, this is still a perfect time of year to stock up on office supplies and set aside some time for flexing those learning muscles. A great way to get started: scan through our September Tech Talks and check out the ones that pique your interest. This month we are covering re:Invent, AI, and much more.
