Leadership comes in many forms, but when it comes to user groups leadership usually describes a sparkplug who is passionate about technology, and who likes to organize groups. Of course I'm talking about our recent AWS Newsletter article that called for folks who want to start a local AWS User Group.
Amazon Web Services have grown rapidly; whether you measure the growth in the number of services or by the size of our developer community (now at 265,000 registered developers).
So it came as no surprise that some of the initial leaders who stepped forward are serial user group organizers! We'll be announcing the formation of several groups in the near future. In the meantime, if you are interested in starting a group in your area, please contact us and let us know where you'd like to found a group - we'll help you get going!
