Who we are

Founded in July 2011, the Melbourne AWS User Group is Australia’s oldest Amazon Web Services-focused user group, and the eighth oldest such group in the world.

From the original seven attendees in Melbourne’s York Butter Factory, we now regularly host meetups with 100+ attendees in the York Butter Factory’s Teamsquare ballroom on Bourke Street, as well as regular special events in the Melbourne AWS office. With 4000+ group members, we are amongst the 20 largest city-specific AWS user groups in the world.


With a combined experience with Amazon Web Services of more than 20 years, the organisers takes care of the regular operation of the Melbourne AWS User Group. From liaising with sponsors, to arranging venues, speakers, and catering, as well as ensuring the smooth operation of the event each night. They have overseen almost 100 successful AWS User Group meetups, with many more to come.
