Welcome to the AWS Community Day Aotearoa !

AWS Community Day Aotearoa is an annual one-day, user-run single-day AWS technical conference that is planned, organized, and delivered by the AWS user group community leaders (much like a “Meetup of Meetups”). The goal of the Community Day is to facilitate the exchange of information amongst the AWS user community. The presentations are all given by speakers who are fellow AWS users sharing knowledge with their peers. This year’s event will be the first annual Community Day Aotearoa that will take place in Wellington, New Zealand.
