AWS Dev Day Helsinki 2018 and Meetup

AWS Dev Day Nordics

On 25th of January, AWS had it’s Dev Day summit in Helsinki, where there was a full day of technical talks produced by the AWS Evangelist team.

Ian MassinghamDanilo PocciaAbby FullerJulien Simon, Paul Maddox and our very own Adrian Hornsby were about to lay the law about the hot topics of the day.

You can find the event site and the evangelist bios here:

The event was held in the new Clarion Hotel Helsinki. As you can see, the morning was grey and rainy. But I was hoping for really good day, so it did not matter too much.

The schedule was packed and so were the rooms. I heard that there were over 400 attendees on site and it really felt like that also.

The topics were concentrating on three main tracks: Serverless, AI and Containers. And these guys are really good presenters.

I had to take also a bit time to handle couple of calls and customer assignments during the day, but my remote office view was pretty OK and coffee was decent, so no complaints there.

AWS Meetup Sponsored by Siili Solutions

After the Dev Day had concluded, I joined with the AWS evangelists and we headed to SIili office for January AWS Meetup.

We had really interesting panel discussion moderated by our very own Marcia.

It was an honor and privilege to get together with these awesome guys. From left to right, yours truly, Adrian Hall, Marcia Villalba, Abby Fuller, Danilo Poccia, Heitor Lessa, Ian Massingham and Adrian Hornsby.

And we will also see Heitor talking in the upcoming meetup. So stay tuned.
