AWS is headed to Toronto!

Not only will we be eating poutine and exploring the streets of Night Summit, but AWS will be hosting Mentor Hours, where we’ll be connecting hundreds of startups to top speakers, lead investors, and members of the media, along with providing them with one-on-one time to ask questions. We’ll also have an “Ask Our Startup Experts” bar—featuring our Startup Solutions Architects and Business Development team. Interested in diving deep into technology? Join us for three jam-packed days of programming at the AWS Developer Theater, where AWS Technical Evangelists will be delivering talks on topics ranging from “Getting started with AWS for Developers” to “It’s the Jetsons Age: Robots & AWS RoboMaker.”
