Amazon Web Services will be in town!


What’s cooking at Amazon these days?, What is Amazon Web Services?, Why Amazon Mechanical Turk is named so? What’s so “Elastic” about Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud? What’s the limit of bottom-less hard-drive in the sky (Amazon Simple Storage Service)? What are some of the 290,000+ registered developers of AWS Developer community building?

Let’s find answers to these questions and more.

It all started with Amazon E-Commerce Service (Amazon ECS), when Amazon.com opened its technology and product vault (2002) to developers by exposing the API and gave them the ability to construct powerful innovative applications using the resources the company has built over eleven years and over $2B developing. Since then, Amazon has launched ten new services that provide developers easy access to inexpensive, scalable web-based infrastructure.

In this session, Seattle-based Jinesh Varia, Evangelist for Amazon Web Services, will talk about these innovations from Amazon.com.

Specifically, Jinesh will talk about Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) that allows requisition of machines on-demand by simple web service call, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) which is infinite storage in the sky and Amazon Mechanical Turk which is the Human Intelligence Web service and how these services can help local start-up companies to go live quickly. Also, we will see some exciting apps, built on AWS that have become profitable businesses and others that are just simply cool to see.

So bring your open minds fully charged, as this session will be interactive and might spur up your thought-liquid for the next ‘Eureka!’ moment.
