AWS Cloud Essentials for government and education

Join for an introduction to AWS Cloud concepts and AWS core services for compute, storage, database, and networking. Hear AWS technical experts who support government customers explain key features and use cases, share best practices, and walk through brief technical demos. AWS experts will also be available to answer your questions one-on-one.

AWS Cloud for your mission

These sessions are for those who are looking to explore the mission benefits of AWS. AWS helps you use the cloud to turn ideas into mission outcomes—creating new ways to increase efficiency and serve your community. The morning series will consist of sessions on mission-oriented topics, followed by technical sessions in the afternoon covering modern data strategy, enhancing constituent engagement, and strategies to enable remote learning and working. When you’re not in a session, utilize the co-working space or meet with your AWS account team to brainstorm implementation of what you learned.

The AWS Cloud Journey

These sessions are about the path to business results through modernization. Join AWS technical experts to learn about the technology that can help you to build, govern, and secure your cloud environment. You will learn about technology that will enable you to build and migrate workloads into the cloud, and modernize your workloads to achieve your results.

Dive deep with AWS experts at the “ask an expert” bar

AWS staff will be onsite to give one-on-one project guidance from 8:30 AM – 5 PM local time. Simply walk up to the bar and dive into your cloud questions. Once you’re on track, take advantage of the co-working space or join one of the educational sessions in progress.

Connect and network in the co-working space

Our spaces offer comfortable seating, Wi-Fi, and activities for further learning. The co-working space is designed for you to settle in and immerse yourself in your projects.
