Overview of Build On, ASEAN

Hosted first in Singapore and Malaysia in 2019, we’ve now expanded the coverage of this competition to the rest of ASEAN: Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar, and Vietnam. We are experiencing unusual times, and we would love for you to join us virtually.

 

Coached by AWS experts and leaders, you will get a chance to learn more about the fundamentals of cloud computing. Select one of the challenge statements provided by our supporting organizations and ideate on a business proposal. If your winning idea gets shortlisted, you will get to present your proposal and prototype to a panel of judges and stand a chance to win some prizes. A team of mentors will guide you from shortlist through to presentation, making sure you're ready for the  final competition.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access technology services, such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider like AWS.

Cloud is driving Industry 4.0

More organisations and services are joining the cloud, and there is a higher demand for cloud-skilled talents, looking toward the fourth industiral revolution.
