Here’s some information on some AWS events coming up in April, all on the East Coast of the US:

  • I will be speaking at the Rochester AWS User Group at 6:00 PM on Monday, April 5th. My talk will cover some of the latest AWS developments including the Virtual Private Cloud and the Relational Database Service.
  • I will be speaking at the New York City Cloud Computing Group at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, April 6th. I’ll cover VPC and RDS again.
  • I will be speaking at the Emerging Tech for the Enterprise conference in Philadelphia on April 9th. I am looking forward to this visit to my home town! If you will be at ETE, please say hello, and also plan to see Chris Cera and David Brussin talk about Enterprise Cloud Computing: Pitfalls, Puzzles, and Great Rewards.
  • As the final talk of my trip to the East Coast, I will be speaking to the RubyNation conference in Reston, Virginia on Saturday, April 10th. I worked in Reston back when the unofficial motto was “We’re not dead, we’re Reston.” Things have livened up considerably since then and I’m looking forward to connecting with some old friends and colleagues while I am in the area.
  • There will be a Mechanical Turk Meetup in New York at 6:00 PM on April 13th. Learn more about Mechanical Turk‘s global on-demand workforce, discover best practices, talk to existing Requesters, and mingle with members of the Mechanical Turk team. Preregister here.
  • Terry Wise, Director of Business Development for the Amazon Web Services, will be speaking at PegaWORLD in Philadelphia on April 26th. Terry will talk about how Tenet Healthcare uses Pegas Cloud Computing solution to radically improve the way it builds its business process applications, reducing delivery time  and cost by a factor of 5. Discount registrations for the conference are available here.
