The AWS Columbus User Group is a community group based in central Ohio. The goal is to discuss Amazon Web Services (AWS) and services that support it. Members are encouraged to learn from fellow members, share knowledge and network with each other for the betterment of the community.

We exist for the benefit of the community, whether you are a regular attendee or volunteer, or are interested in being a part of it for the first time. There is no cost for attending any of our events or participating in our digital channels, and we welcome everyone regardless of skill level or experience with AWS.

How often do you meet?

We try to meet once a month, after business hours on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday from 6-8pm Eastern time. Ideally we rotate host locations and topics and on occasion can have multiple meetups in a month or none none depending on speaker and volunteer arability. A typical meetup starts with a 15 to 30 minute start time to allow members to network and allow presenter(s) to setup. Food and drink may be provided and will be mentioned in the scheduled meetup notes. Each meetup can have between 1-3 presentations though we try our best to focus on one topic per meetup. We also do our best to provide enough time following presentations to allow for questions and answers.
