I've been helping to organise the Jeff Barr, Amazon Web Services Talk at Strathclyde University, Graham Hills Building, Room 5.14
on Monday 23rd July at 5pm.
The organiser - Steven Livingstone aka weblivz - has just sent round the following confirmation to those people that had already expressed interest in the event:
As you may know i have been trying to get the Amazon Web Services talk confirmed
for a while. Thanks to Duncan Smeed at Strathclyde University we have
managed to get a great venue in the centre of Glasgow.
Jeff Barr, Senior Manager at Amazon Web Service Evangelism will talk about Amazon
Web Services. He is in great demand and we're lucky to get him in Glasgow during
his "European Tour", where his meetings include groups at the BBC Future Media
Journalism, Oxford University, Xml Summer School as well as visiting many European
countries over the next two months. His talk will be focused mainly on the technical side of Web Services.
The event has now been confirmed for Monday July 23rd in Glasgow at 5pm.

There are a maximum of 100 places so please make sure you confirm your attendance.
The best way is clicking the "I'm Going" on the Eventful link above.
Given that there is less than two weeks before the actual event it seems that the best way to publicise it is my 'viral' means. So, please help by picking up this news and blogging about it and/or sending the details to anyone you think might be interested in attending.
Within the first hour of the above announcement 10 people had already confirmed their attendance. It will be interesting to monitor the pattern of responses over the next week or so. Hopefully, there'll be an excellent turn-out for Jeff's talk.
