CANCELED: May 2nd – mtg

Our May meeting has been canceled. The room was double-booked, and enrollment was low, likely because of another interesting event at the same time. So, I encourage you to visit my employer, CloudCheckr, in the Village Gate, to attend the AWS Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Rochester-AWS-Users-Group/events/238240089/
