We’re back in San Jose for the Strata conference, March 13-16, 2017, to talk all things big data at AWS and show you some of our latest innovations. Come meet the AWS Big Data team at booth #928, where big data experts will be happy to answer your questions, hear about your requirements, and help you with your big data initiatives.

New this year, we’re hosting a hands-on tutorial on Tuesday, where big data solutions architects will guide you through creating a sample big data application using services such as Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Athena, and AWS Lambda.

You can catch the tutorial on Tuesday March 14, 9am – 12:30pm. Please note that you may need to register in advance.
