Community Resources

Participate in our Community Conversation (Subscribers Only):

Institutions participating in the NET+ AWS program may take advantage of our email discussion list to receive curated program updates and participate in other activities and events.

We host a series of regular events for program subscribers. For 2022 they include:

  • Bi-weekly NET+ AWS Technology Share calls where campus cloud enablement professionals, cloud engineers and developers, meet to discuss their challenges, share lessons learned and collaborate to find the best answers for their institutions' AWS deployment. AWS solutions architects and DLT support engineers regularly attend and participate.
  • Quarterly NET+ AWS Subscriber Calls (Feb, May, Aug, Nov) are home to strategic and directional conversations. The intended audience is cloud and infrastructure leadership, but anyone working on your AWS team is welcome to attend. Twice annually we invite AWS EDU leadership to join us and encourage campus infrastructure and IT leadership to join.
  • Quarterly NET+ AWS Tech Jams (Mar, Jun, Sep, Dec) bring together a couple of subscriber schools working on a specific issue with related technical experts from AWS to talk through the challenge and related choices. The rest of us watch and learn, tossing in our own questions as well. Example topics are building compliant environments, enforcing policies for FinOps best practices, etc. The December Jam is devoted to a rapid-fire recap of the announcements coming out of the annual AWS re:Invent conference that are most relevant to the NET+ subscriber community.
  • Quarterly NET+ AWS Town Halls welcome experts from AWS to present targeted topics to the community. Past Town Halls covered Ransomware, AWS Academy and Research Support Tools. We encourage subscribers to suggest topics we can work with AWS to bring to us.

Please contact to be added to any of these conversations.
