Amazon Web Services Forums

The goal of Amazon Web Services Forums is to provide an environment in which all community members can freely exchange thoughts, ideas, knowledge, and opinions. As Amazon Web Services opens up its data, platform, and tools to the world, we rely on your creativity to help us craft the best technology and programs to meet your needs. But don't take our word for it - every day, these resources and forums enable developers to innovate by offering a powerful support mechanism for any community member, no matter how new or experienced. We place tremendous value on this environment as a medium of information exchange and connection point for you, your peers, and the Amazon Web Services team.

Guiding Principles of Amazon Web Services Forums

We believe that the following guidelines, though basic in nature, are critical to our goal. They apply to use of all of the resources within the Forums, and in our efforts to provide you with a valuable resource, Amazon Web Services will take every action to enforce honest, respectful, and productive communication. Please do your part in helping us maintain this constructive environment by following these guidelines and encouraging your peers to do the same.
  • Honesty

  • Speak your mind! We want to hear what you have to say. What are our strengths? What should we change? Giving us honest feedback about the things at which we are succeeding, and constructive criticism about those which can be improved is of enormous value, and helps us more effectively support the community.
  • Respect

  • Say what you think, but please say it constructively. The comments you post, whether in the forums, or in connection with any of the Resource Center contents, must refrain from demonstrating intolerance for or insulting other groups or individuals. We encourage you to be open, but cannot accept use of this community that demonstrates disrespect for others or offensive behavior.
  • Productivity

  • Use web real estate wisely. Have a question (no matter how complex)? Ask away and challenge your peers! Have a great idea for a new feature, or need help in planning your application? Tell us! Please, however, do not intentionally post content that demonstrates little or no relevance to AWS development or program issues, or disrupts the effective use of the forums in any way. Please communicate only in a manner that respects the time and energy of your peers.
