The podcast for the AWS User Group in Melbourne. We discuss all things AWS and how they impact our community.
Q1 2023 Announcements Round Robin
For this episode, Arjen is joined by Jason and Matt to discuss the news from the first quarter of 2023. As that is a bit much, they decide to focus on the Melbourne region first and then pick some of their favourites round-robin style.
The Melbourne Region
For this very special episode, Arjen is joined by Dawn, Jason, and Matt to discuss our newly launched local region. So, of course, we take that opportunity to whinge about missing services and features while also trying to show that we’re actually really happy it’s here. And at the end we’ll take a brief excursion to the new Perth Local Zone as well.
After a long hiatus, we’re back with season 2 of our podcast! In this episode Arjen, Jason, and Matt discuss their favourite announcements of re:Invent 2022 and how much of this is quality of life improvements.
What’s New in January 2022
In this month’s episode Arjen, JM, and Guy discuss the news from January 2022. Well, everything announced after re:Invent really, but that’s mostly from January. There are good announcements all over; from a new Console Home to unpronounceable instance types, but there is also some news around the podcast that’s either good or bad depending on how you interpret it.
What’s New in November and at re:Invent 2021
Pull your podcast player out of instant retrieval, because we're discussing re:Invent 2021 as well as the weeks before it. Lots of announcements; big, small, weird, awesome, and anything in between. We had fun with this episode and hope you do too.
