AWS Launches Its First Pop-up Loft Outside the U.S.

After opening Pop-up Lofts in San Francisco and New York, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has now planned to open a Pop-up Loft in London – a working space for developers, entrepreneurs, students, and others who are interested in working with and learning more about AWS Cloud. The new Loft is located on the 6th floor of 1 Fore Street in London, close to Moorgate station and convenient to Old Street.

The opening party of AWS’ new Pop-up Loft in London will take place on September 10th and the Loft will open for business on the morning of September 11th. After that it will be open from 9 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday, with special events in the evening. During the day, users will have access to the “Ask an Architect Bar,” daily education sessions, Wi-Fi, a co-working space, and snacks, all at no charge.

Users can book a session ahead of time or they can simply walk in. There they will have access to deep technical expertise and will be able to get guidance on AWS architecture, usage of specific AWS Cloud services and features, cost optimization, and more.

DevOps Expertise

aws-cloudChef, provider of automation for DevOps, has announced it is bringing its DevOps expertise to the new Amazon Web Services (AWS) Pop-up Loft in London. Chef’s support in the new London Loft builds on the success of the sessions hosted in the AWS Pop-up Lofts in San Francisco and New York City.

“We’re seeing a surge of interest in DevOps and Chef in the UK,” said Justin Arbuckle, Chef’s chief enterprise architect and vice president of EMEA. “The AWS Pop-up Loft provides a unique opportunity for Chef to offer more dedicated training and resources in London. This type of hands-on effort is needed to accelerate IT initiatives in the UK. Practitioners are hungry to learn and we’re excited to be at the forefront of this new effort with AWS.”
