AWSome day Geneva 2018



For the second time in Geneva,  Amazon Web Services, Smartwave and the other Swiss partners  are pleased to invite you to the next AWSomeday in Geneva on the 12th of June. Just like last year the event will take place  in the center of Geneva at Fédération des Entreprises de Genève.

As we did last year, and in order to provide you with the most relevant content, we have organised the AWSomeday Geneva with two distinct and complementary tracks. This way of presenting will allow you to be trained AWS  and will also give us the opportunity to share with you what are doing companies with AWS.

The AWS fundamental track covers training on AWS foundational services such as Amazon infrastructure services, security & management tools. The Geneva special track will be more focused on knowledge sharing on the implementation and adoption of AWS services in our region.

You can also check the detailed agenda here under to get more informations about the different cessions.

We are looking forward to welcome you.
