How to build on AWS - thinking, choosing, studying, starting

On April 25th in Aberdeen, Cloudsoft shared the stage with ONE Codebase Aberdeen, and our partners AWS Cloud plus Aberdeen startup Deep Miner to share real-world approaches to building startups on AWS.

The new ONE Codebase space opens soon in June. Follow @onecodebase on Twitter.

The Cloudsoft presentation was based on our experiences with startups and enterprises, helping them to learn from others and plan a happy-path to build their new "thing" on AWS. The goal was to share practical advice with the local build, startup and digital community in Aberdeen.

Cloudsoft plan to be back in Aberdeen soon. Contact Us if you want to talk!
