Attached is some more info.  Amazon has added some generic (non-book)
distributed computing services, and he's going to cover them first.

This Wikipedia article has a tad more information about the individual
services:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Web_Services

With ten services launched and more on their way, Amazon Web Services provides 
developers access to inexpensive, scalable web-based business solutions and 

Amazon.com, via Amazon Web Services, opened its technology vault in
2002 to allow developers the ability to construct powerful
applications using the resources the company spent ten years and over
$1 billion developing.

Jinesh Varia, Evangelist for Amazon Web Services, looks at real world
examples of how developers have utilized Amazon Web Services' open
APIs to develop exciting, profitable businesses. Varia will also
demonstrate the newly launched Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon
EC2) which allows developers to build a virtual computing environment
in minutes and only pay for computing usage.

This session will also explore other innovative integrations of Amazon
Web Services such as Amazon Simple Storage Service, Amazon E-Commerce
Service, Amazon Simple Queue Service, Amazon Mechanical Turk, Alexa
Web Information Service, and more.


Jinesh Varia is focused on furthering awareness of web services and
inspiring developers to create innovative applications using Amazon
Web Services. Jinesh also works with developers on a 1:1 basis helping
them implement their own ideas using Amazon?s innovative services. You
might find Jinesh at the local code camp or involved in all the geeky
things that happen in web 2.0 world.

Prior to joining Amazon Web Services as an evangelist, Jinesh was
involved in an XML Standards-based firm, UBmatrix, as a XBRL Solutions
Architect and Software Design Engineer. He was also a developer at
Penn State Data Center, Institute of Regional Affairs. Jinesh is
originally from India and holds a Master?s degree in Information
Systems from Penn State University. He plays tennis and loves to trek.
