AWS STRIDES Training

Through the STRIDES program AWS is offering to make a substantial investment in training USCF staff and researchers on the AWS cloud platform. We have selected a number of courses to offer that are suitable for researchers, bio-informatics programmers, system administrators and data scientists. There are 30 seats available in each course and multi-day courses require the commitment that you attend all the days in the course. The courses are all offered online via virtual delivery and will have live instruction with the ability to ask questions in real time.  

If you are interested in attending any of these on-line courses, please send Esther Silver ([email protected]) an email and she will invite you.  Registration information will be added to the invitation once available and the invite will be resent.
