Desktop and Application Streaming

AWS EUC @re:Invent: Getting started with Amazon AppStream 2.0

Do you want to stream applications and desktops to end users anywhere, on any device, via a web browser? Do you like to learn by doing? Then join us for Getting started with Amazon AppStream 2.0 (session EUC303) on Tuesday, November 29 at 2:45pm in Mandalay Bay room Breakers K (Level 2 South).

In this two-hour workshop, you’ll gain hands-on experience with Amazon AppStream 2.0, a fully-managed application and desktop streaming service. Make sure to bring your laptop! We’ll provide each participant with an individual, temporary AWS account containing pre-configured resources so you can get to work quickly. You’ll connect to a Windows image builder, add sample applications, and create a custom image. You’ll then create a fleet from this custom image, and a stack to manage access. Finally, you’ll start a streaming session and explore the end-user experience. Experienced AWS staff will be on hand to help.

In addition to technical details, I’ll discuss some of the features that make AppStream 2.0 popular with enterprises, ISVs, and educational institutions. If you’re new to AppStream 2.0, I recommend reviewing the administration guide or Amazon AppStream 2.0 Primer beforehand.
