Learn something new by attending virtual workshops

Have you been missing live, instructor-led training you would typically find at in-person Summits? So have we! That’s why this year we are working closely with AWS developer advocates to include a series of online, hands-on workshops designed to equip you with new, tangible skills you can take back to your organization. Workshops are great for anyone who is eager to learn in a casual atmosphere where even if you fall behind, you’re encouraged to keep watching and take notes. AWS team members will be standing by to help if you get stuck.

Workshops include:

  • Intro to Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)
  • Intro to Serverless Computing
  • Intro to AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK)
  • Building an Enterprise Analytics Solution with Amazon Redshift and .net

These no-cost workshops will be hosted twice to accommodate different time zones. Summit registrants will receive more information closer to the event on how to sign up for available workshops.
