Cal Poly to host Amazon Web Services ‘Discovery Days’ April 14 and 21 

Cal Poly to host Amazon Web Services 'Discovery Days' Apr. 14 and 21

–Cal Poly will host its first Amazon Web Services (AWS) Discovery Days on April 14 and 21, allowing students and professionals access to free one-day training events to introduce AWS cloud services.

The AWS Discovery Days are designed to provide a glimpse into a variety of cybersecurity, cloud optimization, digital literacy, and high-tech topics with the goal of creating interest in and an overall understanding of cloud computing and AWS infrastructure services.

On April 14 from noon-3 p.m., Cal Poly will offer a session at the virtual UC Cyber Security Summit. On April 21 from 1-4 p.m., another session will be presented via Zoom. Both events offer a great way for interested individuals to learn more about AWS fundamental cloud concepts and services.

Those who participate in an event will gain a deeper understanding of AWS core services and benefits. Learners will be able to define what the AWS Cloud is; recognize key services of the cloud, such as compute, storage, database; understand how to deploy and operate the cloud; differentiate among AWS service domains; explain the shared responsibility model; and describe basic security and compliance aspects of the AWS platform.

“Discovery Days provide the perfect opportunity for students to gain an overall understanding of AWS Cloud and AWS Cloud terminology so that they can decide in which direction to steer their future career,” said Dianna Previs, director of programming for Cal Poly Extended Education. “Participants will benefit from being taught by Cal Poly professors as well as testing out our motto of, ‘learn by doing.’”

Cal Poly joined the AWS Network (APN) Training Partner Program in October. The program enables authorized instructors at the university to deliver training developed by AWS. Cal Poly Extended Education is partnering with CCI, UpSkill California and California’s Employment Training Panel (ETP) to implement AWS trainings and offer them to students and professionals seeking to upskill or reskill and earn AWS certifications.
