The first of Amazon’s pop-up services offering free advice, meet-ups and office space for tech enthusiasts, developers and engineers will open in the City this September.

Amazon Web Services (AWS), is taking the AWS Pop-up Loft programme global for the first time - after successfully launching one in both San Francisco and New York.

Visitors can participate in training courses, boot camps, self-paced labs, meet-ups, and other special events, or just grab a coffee and work on their app in the open office space - all for free. CTO and vice president Werner Vogels said: “The UK is a hotbed of innovation and London is one of the main places where we see talented, ambitious entrepreneurs coming together to test ideas and start new businesses that leverage cloud computing.

“With the AWS Pop-up Loft in London we will be bringing together a host of AWS resources, and some of the brightest and most creative minds in the industry, to help startups across the UK. We look forward to working alongside the next generation of UK businesses and helping them to reach their full potential.”

AWS Pop-up Loft will be open from Thursday, September 10 to Thursday, October 29 between 10am and 6pm (although later for evening events).
