Amazons AWS Summit – US and Canada 2020
This past May, 2020 Amazon presented their AWS Summit – US and Canada with a keynote by their Amazon CTO, Werner Vogels, and a collection of about 40 additional technical sessions. Amazon’s AWS Summit is a free online conference that is presented as a series of events in each of its major global regions. Like most major tech events during this pandemic, this year’s AWS Summit was an on-line virtual event.
Amazon CTO Werner Vogels kicked off the conference with a presentation from his office in Amsterdam. Vogels spoke about how a strong technological foundation is essential for the new remote offices. Vogels explained, “In the light of current events, you could argue it’s more important than ever to rapidly build solutions and respond to changes around us.” He noted that COVID-19 has forced individuals and businesses around the world to shift both mindsets and functionalities and that through 2020 and into the future most organizations will continue shifting toward a cloud-based infrastructure.
