Amazon’s Jeff Barr Visiting Provo Labs

Jeff Barr is coming to Provo Labs in February!

This is going to be a great opportunity for Utah’s entrepreneurs and IT crowd to learn more about what Amazon is doing with web services. Jeff is a Web Services evangelist at Amazon; he has a great inside view of the powerful tools and services that Amazon has built for internal use that they are willing to provide to other companies, some for free and some for a fee.

I’ll post information about time and place later. We will have room for all our Provo Labs Academy members and may have space for others. So please let me know if you’d like to be on our waiting list.

  1. What a great opportunity to hear Jeff speak about AWS. Amazon has been nothing short of amazing with the web services they have released over the past 12 months. We are finding great success using S3 and SQS, and we are soon going to deploy a number of EC2 servers as well.

    Nice job, Paul, for helping line up this opportunity for many people to hear Jeff’s presentation on AWS.

  2. I saw Jeff Barr give a presentation at Affiliate Summit last year, and it was one of the best ones there. Amazon is into some amazing stuff! They don’t get the publicity that Google does every time they sneeze, but Amazon is quietly doing some really interesting things. I highly recommend attendance at this Provo Labs appearance to anyone who can make it.

  3. Message got munged it seems (please feel free to decline/delete the last post, Paul. Thanks!)

    Will be there for sure. 🙂

    Jeff: Will sync up with you in email to discuss your mentioned

  4. Paul,
    I’m so glad you have that connection with Jeff! It was great running into you the other day and thanks for inviting us to Jeff’s seminar. Looking forward to hearing all the new and neat programs Amazon has been rolling out.

    Joe
