San Diego, Los Angeles Amazon Web Services Events

Thank you to all those who were able to attend the Amazon Web Services events this week in San Diego and Los Angeles.

From talking to the event coordinators, we know that there were several who could not make the event because of the wild fires and evacuations. We missed meeting you at the events, and we offer our condolences to those who were affected. If you were hoping to talk with us and get into the private beta of Bungee Connect, please email Ted Haeger (ted at bungeelabs) and I will expedite an invite key to you.
