Startup Central Talks from the AWS Toronto Summit

Throughout 2018, AWS held free Summits around the world aimed at bringing the cloud computing community together to connect, collaborate, and learn. From San Francisco to Bejing, thousands of technologists gathered at these day-long events to hear from AWS leadership, as well as to meet and network with the wider industry.

At many of this year’s Summits, the AWS Startup Team set up dedicated theater and technical spaces for founders and entrepreneurs. Dubbed “Startup Central,” these areas featured a walk-up bar where attendees could gain insight from expert AWS Solutions Architects, as well as a stage for members from the local community to give talks on interesting technical challenges they’ve faced and overcome.

Below are the startup talks from at the AWS Summit held on September 20rd, 2018 in Toronto. From best practices for building a data team to utilizing machine learning to analyze trillions of records, the talks covered a wide array of topics from the local community.
