Amazon Web Services Hold Their First Partner Conference in November

Got a memo from Amazon Web Services: They're holding their first "customer and partner conference" in November. It looks much more technical than business oriented. The sessions appear to be on coding, languages, and development platforms rather than the business side of making the most out of the cloud.

No word on pricing yet, but here are the key dates:
  • Call for Presentations closes May 31, 2012
  • Speakers will be notified early June 2012
  • Registration opens June 2012

Here's the announcement:
