About this event

Are you interested to learn how cloud servers use AWS (Amazon Web Services), and would like to enter this growing industry, but don’t know where to start?

If you want to code-along with the presenters (most recommended), and put into practice what you are learning, then you can create a free AWS account using this link - https://portal.aws.amazon.com/billing/signup?nc2=h_ct&src=header_signup&redirect_url=https%3A%2F%2Faws.amazon.com%2Fregistration-confirmation#/start/email. You can use your Dal email, however note that you will have to enter your debit/credit card details (you will not be charged, this is from the official AWS account and it is only to ensure that their services are not misused.) The presenters will take special care to only show you the free services, which are enough to begin learning. If you have any questions/issues, send us an email on gdsc@dal.ca. If you prefer not to code-along, that is okay and you can still come and watch to learn and make notes.

This is a hybrid session, so the event will run in-person at the Shiftkey Labs, Room 426 at the Goldberg Computer Science Building, where food will also be provided. It will also run online for those of you who prefer to join the event from the comfort of your homes – Google Meets link :https://meet.google.com/vht-zgfm-zrq

At the end of the event, 60$ worth of prizes (in the form of Amazon gift cards) will also be given out to the top winners of the Kahoot quiz !

See you on 25!
