AWS launches innovative Pop Up Loft in Johannesburg

Following the success of similar events that have taken place globally, Amazon Web Services (AWS), the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, has this month launched a Pop-up Loft in Sandton, Johannesburg.

The Pop-up Loft is a space created for customers and enterprises to learn more about emerging innovation around cloud computing. The Pop-up Loft will offer a variety of activities, including technical sessions, workshops and in-person AWS technical and business guidance from AWS experts like Synthesis Software Technologies (Synthesis).

As a proud sponsor, Synthesis welcomes you to explore the benefits of AWS while learning from industry experts about how to power business agility in the digital age.

Michael Shapiro, Synthesis MD, said: “This is an easy, engaging way for anyone interested to get a sense of AWS’ capabilities and to meet and question some of the leading experts in the field. It’s a one-stop shop for developers, architects and CTOs to access local technical resources and expertise to help them build robust and successful cloud-powered applications.”

The Synthesis team will be presenting at three sessions:
