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.

This year kicked off with a keynote speech from Max Peterson, vice president of AWS worldwide public sector, who will also end the conference with a fireside chat.

Accompanying events will feature talks and discussions from leaders in the federal departments like the US Air Force, Department of Veterans Affairs, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and Department of Commerce, as well as PBS, the AARP and Blackboard. Representatives from institutions like the Smithsonian will also be discussing how they use AWS for their missions.


The event is currently being held at the Convention Center September 28-29, and is being livestreamed.
