The home page for Amazon Web Services (AWS) is www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?node=3435361. From that page, you can register for an ID, download and read documentation (including code examples in a variety of languages), and participate in forums for AWS developers. A frequently updated Weblog with news and ideas about AWS is at aws.typepad.com.
