We have customers on Mars…
Amazon Web Services (AWS) builds computational tools for customers who do extraordinary things to solve some of the toughest problems in science and engineering, and supports thousands of start-ups who bring these powerful techniques to life as products and services for the rest of us.
In this seminar, led by Brendan Bouffer ("boof") from Amazon EC2 Engineering (bio here), you will hear about the technologies being used by Amazon, some of the movement they're seeing globally and talk about how working at Amazon allows them to fail fast and scale their impact to the world.
Finally, they'll leave plenty of time for discussion over drinks to identify the problems that we should all be looking at next, and hopefully inspire you to experiment too, so you can scale your impact to the worlds. All of them.
