We’re delighted to be hosting and sponsoring the 3rd Cambridge AWS User Group meetup tonight. Where we’re going to be getting a run down of this year’s AWS re:Invent and I’ll give an introduction to Metail’s data pipeline with a focus on how we’re using and configuring some of AWS’ services to power Metail’s data insights. As sponsors we’ll be providing beer, soft drinks and wine as well as some snacks (I’m a big fan of honey roasted cashews and in charge of purchasing, so feel free to comment on this post with any special requests).
It’s the first of these events we’re hosting here at Metail and I’ve used it as an excuse to write a presentation for the group. Although the meetup is moving around various hosts and sponsors in Cambridge you can expect to see it back at Metail in future, and hopefully a follow up/continuation of my talk in a future meetup.
Here’s the summary of the event from the user group page:
Docker, containers and the like. Plus, those of us who made it back from Vegas alive report on our findings.
The BIG news…if you’re in the Internet of Things business, a database or data analytics specialist, are into Docker containers, or use Kinesis or Lambda, there were some major announcements – and you will definitely want to be here to hear them!
This meeting is hosted, and snacks and drinks sponsored, by Metail.
We’ve got a lot to get through, so the meeting will start at 7pm sharp, with doors open from 6:30 – please be prompt!
• Notices and news – Jon Green (Adeptium Consulting) and Brief Intro to Metail – Gareth Rogers (Metail)
• re:Invent 2015 Debrief – Ian Massingham (AWS) (and/or Jon Green) – all the gory details and new announcements!
• Metail’s Data Pipeline and AWS – Gareth Rogers

• [Possibly] From Zero to Hero in AWS – follow-up – Tom Clark
Hope to see you later! We also host the Cambridge R Users Group, Data Insights Cambridge, DevOps Cambridge and Cambridge NonDysFunctional Programmers so if you can’t make it, there are plenty of other opportunities to come along to Metail for some drinks, snacks and tech chat.
I’d just like to say thanks to Gareth and Metail for hosting and sponsoring the event – it’s got every chance to be our best yet!
