There will be regular hands-on lab hours for Amazon Web Services every month on campus starting in Fall, 2016. We will have one or more AWS solutions architects join us to walk through specific technical topics including introductions to AWS, S3, EC2, Virtual Private Clouds (VPC), and other more specific topics. The labs are designed to build on each other, so it will be helpful to attend at least the introductory labs before moving into the more specific ones. Hours and locations will be announced here.
