  • AWS Summit Amsterdam 2015

  • AWS Amsterdam

    Unfortunately I arrived in Amsterdam on a train from Berlin (Never take this train) to face the heat record (38.2C). A European heat wave in early July has smashed a few all-time records. In Israel it’s not a all-time record but we do have airco everywhere!

    The only airco during the Keynote was in Hands-On Labs zone and it’s was very popular :)
