What is an Immersion Day?
An Immersion Day is a free AWS experience delivered by solutions architects and account managers.
An AWS Immersion Day is a full day session which will familiarize both technical and business staff about AWS. They’ll discuss the benefits of cloud and AWS in particular, services available on the AWS platform, and common use cases. Each session of 10-25 individuals consists of a combination of presentations and hands-on lab activities.
Benefits of an Immersion Day
For districts, an Immersion Day allows hands-on-time with AWS services, and Solution Architect guidance for their particular use cases. By the end of the session, participants will have seen common cloud use cases in action, and know where to go in order to learn more.
