Register to attend the July 25 ‘Amazon Campus Day’

Please join us on July 25 for ‘Amazon Campus Days,’ an interactive session for those who are interested in or are currently using Amazon Web Services (AWS). The event will be held from 9am–5pm at the Pyle Center (room 335).

A short discussion on “Why you would use AWS“ will start the day followed by hands-on labs. After lunch, we will offer one-on-one sessions with Ryan Kolak from Amazon to discuss your particular environments and how AWS services might best meet your needs.

UW–Madison AWS technologists and Amazon technologists (Jim Schramek, Senior Account Executive, and Ryan Kolak, Senior Solutions Architect) will help lead the morning sessions. Please note: Labs will be a repeat of those offered at the April 21, May 3 and June 8 sessions. Attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to participate in the labs.

Because space is limited, please register for the event by July 24. We may not be able to accept all applications. We will notify you via email whether a space has been reserved for you or if you’ve been added to a wait list.
