AWS at Web Summit 2017


Talking robots, self-driving cars, and chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov simultaneously playing 10 opponents. Web Summit 2017 is shaping up to be a real game-changer and we at Amazon Web Services are counting down the days until we’re on the ground in Lisbon.

If you're planning to be at Web Summit this year, AWS will be hosting Mentor Hours, connecting hundreds of startups to top speakers, leading investors, and members of the media, to provide them with dedicated one-on-one time. We’ll also have our “Ask An Expert” bar, and will be presenting three full days of programming at the AWS Developer Workshop, where AWS solution architects will give technical talks on topics ranging from “Building A Real-Time Chat System” to “Getting Started With Kubernetes.”

Here's a look at the full schedule of AWS speakers and sessions. If you want to make sure you don't miss any of the content, sign up via the short form and we'll make sure to send you a link to the presentations:
