Amazon’s “Architecting with AWS” at PayrollHero Manila

Amazon’s AWS ASEAN team, based in Singapore, was looking for a location for their 3 day “Architecting with AWS” event that they were planning on holding in Manila.  We offered the PayrollHero offices, and this morning 35 engineers from some of the Philippines leading organizations showed up for three days of learning from Amazon’s AWS technical team.

Attendees needed to have some existing knowledge or experience with AWS and have a conceptual understanding of the key infrastructure services (EC2, S3, RDS, etc), their features, and how they are used.

Over the next 3 days, attendees will be immersed in all things AWS and will walk away with a great knowledge of what Amazon’s solution is truly capable of.  Here are a couple of pictures from this morning.  Looks like it is going to be a great few days!!

Amazon Web Services ASEAN Head Drops By PayrollHero

A couple guests dropped by the PayrollHero office today in Manila.  Franco Eisma, who is our representative at AWS and is no stranger to the PayrollHero dojo dropped by with Richard Harshman, Head of ASEAN and India for Amazon Web Services.

Maybe next time we can get Richard boxing with our head trainer?
