SIG-Computing Topic: Introduction to Amazon AWS

Presented by Brian Korzynski

Amazon AWS is the other main player in cloud computing. They have many of the same offerings as Azure, but also some that are different. We’ll take a look at the basics such as SQS, S3, EC2, SNS, and SES, to see how you can quickly and easily incorporate the cloud into your existing applications.

SIG-Linux Topic: REVOLUTION OS (movie)

Presented by Sharan Kalwani

REVOLUTION OS tells the inside story of the hackers who rebelled against the proprietary software model and Microsoft to create GNU/Linux and the Open Source movement.

GNU/Linux and the Open Source & Free Software movements arguably represent the greatest threat to proprietary software business models. Shot in cinema-scope on 35mm film in Silicon Valley, REVOLUTION OS tracks down the key movers and shakers behind Linux, and finds out how and why Linux became such a potent threat. REVOLUTION OS runs 85 minutes.
