Ask Amazon’s Scott Sikora about that #AWSOutage at this meetup

The next Philly New Tech Meetup session is happening on March 15 at Quorum, featuring a guest from the West Coast: Amazon’s Director of EC2 Scott Sikora.

The timing is quite curious, as the event will happen just a couple of weeks after Amazon’s Web Services had an outage in its S3 product that had devs and geeks alike having a … bit of a day.

(Although it doesn’t appear as though Sikora is directly connected to the S3 operation, organizer Mike Krupit told us via email the group does not screen questions, so asking Sikora about the outage is fair game.)

“It’s not often that West Coast tech dignitaries come to Philly to talk nuts and bolts, so PNTM is excited to host Amazon this month to explore one of the mysteries of the clouds: how it appears infinitely scalable,” Krupit said.

Also, lookout for demos from Yellowdig’s Shantanu Sharma and Bustle’s Steve Faulkner.

The meetup group, which first launched in 2014 following a curious history, reaches a bit of a numeric milestone with its 35th session. What lies ahead for PTNM?

“PNTM is nearing completion of its third full year of programming,” said Krupit. “There’s so much content still to explore, and so much local talent to learn and celebrate. Our fourth year will step up its game with new types of events, a new platform, and a bolder brand.”
