A new AWS Region in Stockholm
AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is committed to our customers across the Nordics, which is why we recently launched a new AWS Europe Region in Stockholm, Sweden. You can now use the AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region to deliver websites, applications, and content to end users across the Nordics with lower latency. You can also leverage AWS services for advanced technologies, such as analytics, database, mobile services, and serverless, to drive innovation. For a complete list of AWS services available in the Europe (Stockholm) Region, visit the AWS Region Table page.

Hackathon for Good
AWS is committed to making a positive impact in the communities where its employees live and work. To support this commitment, AWS is launching an AWS Hackathon for Good program in the Nordics. AWS will work with organizations across the Nordics to identify social issues that technology could address and organize hackathons to create potential solutions.
In the first AWS Hackathon for Good, AWS will collaborate with the Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation during their Nordic Coastal Cleanup Day. Last year, over 40,000 people in Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden helped clean up the coasts, removing nearly 2,000 kilograms of litter. AWS will invite developers across the Nordics for a 24-hour hackathon event where they will be able to connect and collaborate with peers, work on real challenges for Keep Sweden Tidy, and get expert help from AWS solution architects. They will also be able to use the broad scope of services and features offered by the AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region, with the aim of providing Keep Sweden Tidy and the Nordic Coastal Cleanup Day with technology solutions that could improve litter removal along the Nordic coastlines.
The hackathon will take place in the second half of 2019. To request more information on the hackathon, click below.
