AWS Community Summit

AWS ComSum is the Community Summit for AWS users in the UK.

The summit has spun out of the AWS User Group North, which is one of the largest and longest running in the country.

The conference will be held in Manchester on 2nd April 2019 at Victoria Warehouse. It will be a full-day, three track conference for 350 people.

The day will consist of talks, workshops and networking and will provide an opportunity for people from all parts of the AWS ecosystem to meet, learn, and share experiences.

The AWS Community Summit is supported by AWS but independent of them. It will provide the community with a platform to have a ‘collective voice’: an opportunity to explore what we love about AWS, but also what we’d like to see improved.

When the sessions finish, the conference turns into a gaming festival: Arcade Club is bringing over 50 of their arcade machines and VR experiences to the venue. The food, drink, gaming and networking will go on until 10 pm.
