Highlights: AMIMOTO WordPress + AWS Hands-on Warsaw

When our team visited Poland in September 2015, we sponsored, spoke and participated in WordCamp Krakow. We also had our first hands-on workshop after the contributor day.

We were back in Poland again on the 10th of February for another AMIMOTO: WordPress + Amazon Web Services Hands-on WARSAW that was kindly hosted by Google Campus Warsaw.

Campus Warsaw is one of the six Google Campuses around the world.
It’s a massive space that houses hundreds of residents, event attendees and visitors in its coworking Spaces, main event space, classroom, meeting rooms and cafe.

We were welcomed by the staff at the reception area, handing out our Campus ID cards. Getting the Warsaw ID means you’re welcome to use the rest of the Campuses located in London, Tel Aviv, Seoul, Madrid and Sao Paulo.

Last week’s hands-on attendees were composed of developers, programmers, freelancers, business owners and partners, IT and marketing staff.

Is the space that we choose during the hands-on (10GB, from 30GB) enough to host one domain?
10 GB is enough space to host a website, everything depends from your needs and the type of your website. You also can increase it the 10GB to 20GB or even 30GB as needed.

What if I prefer other plugins instead of the pre-installed ones, what should I do?
All pre-installed plugins are not yet activated (except for NGINX Cache Controller).
You may delete them and replace them with the plugins that you prefer. However, we recommend that you keep the NGINX Cache Controller running, as the number of access to your site may be affected.
