Cloud Academy is proud to be a sponsor at the AWS Summit New York on Tuesday, July 17 in New York City. This event is an opportunity for organizations to learn how they can stay ahead of the curve in areas including artificial intelligence (AI), security, cost optimization, cloud migration, and more.
The AWS Summit New York agenda is packed with lots of great options, including chalk talks, challenges, and workshops. Unfortunately, you can’t be everywhere at once. If you’re looking for a little guidance for how to make the most of the event, here are my picks of the “could,” “should,” and “must” attend events for the day.
