The AWS Big Data Meetup brings Big Data developers and enthusiasts together to discuss Big Data solutions with each other and AWS team members. At the event you will hear speakers from AWS and the wider community who are pushing the boundaries of Big Data. We are committed to maintaining a technical focus, and invite you to participate as a guest or as a speaker. There will be food and plenty of time for one-on-one conversations.
