An IRL tech conference is live in DC this week.
This week, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is putting on its annual Washington, DC Summit for developers in the cloud space.
With sessions like “A zero-trust approach for achieving an ATO on AWS and Large-scale” and “Oracle-engineered systems migration to the cloud,” the summit covers all aspects of development and engineering with AWS.
This year’s schedule includes breakout sessions, builders sessions for small groups, interactive ‘Chalk Talks’ and multi-hour workshops, with four different level tracks based on attendees’ experience. Attendees can also receive AWS certification and check out an autonomous racing league featuring DeepRacer technology.
