Today, we had the opportunity to host Jeff Barr of Amazon AWS at Daresbury Innovation Centre. Here is the proof:

Jeff was kind enough to give an understanding to Amazon AWS, both in terms of business case as well as product propositions. This was followed by lunch (thanks to Paul Treloar and Mark Blackburn of Daresbury Innovation Centre) and few presentations from the audience, which included edocr, i2monline, MyLiverpoolSkyLine and two more.
Afternoon was spent on discussions with Jeff on edocr platform with respect to Amazon AWS, which has to remain confidential for the time being.
Hopefully, Jeff and I will work on identifying companies in the North who uses Amazon AWS with the intention of holding a gathering of some sort next year.
Big thank you to all who managed to make it to the event, at short notice.
