The Linux Users Group @ UTD is coordinating with local Amazon reps to host a technical introduction to AWS, demonstrating its many services and abilities. Bring a laptop and join us on this interactive lecture! We will walk users through setting up a trial account on AWS, and explain in detail some cool things they can do with it. The event will be held on March 25 at 7:00 pm in the TI Auditorium in ECSS.

Optional: We will be walking users through setting up a trial account for AWS, which is free for one year. You'll need a credit-card to participate with this step (note: you will not be charged anything as long as you stay in the AWS free tier monthly usage allotment).
