Cloud computing is ranked as the #1 skill to have on LinkedIn for the last two years in a row. There are hundreds of related cloud employment opportunities currently available in Switzerland. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is offering the opportunity for you to learn skills that are in demand and that can help drive change in academia. We are calling all cloud enthusiasts from Universities across Switzerland to join us for a five day event in Zurich to learn everything you need to know to become a cloud hero for your community.
This is our first launch of the AWS Cloud Summer School in Switzerland. You will receive five days of training and workshops across several AWS services. Once you have taken the course, you will be prepared to make use of cloud in your courses, research, or campus-IT projects. The trainers delivering the course have backgrounds in academia and have extensive cloud experience in Switzerland. This full week of learning is structured into three days of training sessions (Architecting on AWS) and two days of deep exploration workshops covering advanced and innovative domains
Continuous Everything (Devops and CICD)
Big Data and Data Analytics
AI/ML with AWS DeepLens (incl. Serverless and Big Data techniques)
IoT (incl. Serverless and Big Data techniques)
Every participant will also receive access to AWS Educate, Amazon’s global initiative to provide students the resources needed to learn cloud skills. For the ones who are ready for the next step and plan to get certified we are offering to join AWS Academy for curriculum content and rebates on certification.
This event is targeted for employees of Swiss Universities, Research Societies, and K-12 schools who are currently using, or are considering AWS. This includes educators, researchers, IT staff from central or departmental IT, and other AWS users coming from education and research entities in Switzerland. We recommend that particpants have completed the AWS Cloud Practicioner course and/or Technical Essentials course, some experience using cloud and a solid overall level of IT knowledge.
In order to provide a quality delivery and maximum attention to our participants we only have 30 seats reserved for this event. Eligibility is based on employee or student status at a public or private education organization in Switzerland. We will carefully review your application for how well you are able to communicate your experience with cloud/AWS and why you should be picked to participate for the AWS Cloud Summer School Switzerland.
The AWS Cloud Summer School Switzerland will be delivered by experienced and certified AWS trainers who are based in Switzerland, leaders of the local AWS User Groups, and that regularly teach at Universities. Mr. Matthias Imsand, from amanox solutions and Mr. Rino Belegu, from Legendary IT Solutions will be the trainers. You can find their profiles here: Matthias Imsand, Rino Belegu
