Save The Date! AWS re: Invent – Global Customer and Partner Conference

by Jeff Barr | on | in Events | | Comments




Executive Summary
Block off November 27-29 on your calendar, book a flight to Las Vegas, and plan to spend three days at AWS re: Invent learning more about AWS from AWS engineers, architects, partners, and customers in over 100 sessions.

AWS re: Invent is our inaugural conference for customers and partners. We’ll take over the Venetian Hotel and have a great time, wrapping things up with a Global Block Party featuring superstar DJs from around the world.

This event contains content targeted at Developers, Start-ups, and Enterprise IT:

Developers can attend language-specific getting started sessions along with advanced sessions that will cover architecture, monitoring, configuration management, and performance optimization. We’ll be running an all-day Coding Challenge in the Developer Lounge with cool prizes and a chance to show us (and your peers) what you can do.

Start-ups can learn about best practices for architecture, scalability, and cost savings from many of the world’s fastest growing internet start-ups. Stealth start-ups can launch in front of press, analysts, VCs, and the entire AWS community in our Launch Theater, where we’ll also host the finale of the global AWS Start-Up Challenge.

Enterprise IT can attend getting started and advanced sessions, with a focus on migrations, operations, and security.

You’ll also get to hear customers, partners, and AWS talk about the solutions and workloads that are of particular interest to you, whether you are interested in gaming, mobile, web, internal IT, disaster recovery, big data, HPC, or analytics.

If you have something you’d like to share with the AWS community — perhaps a success story, some lessons learned, or some best practices — submit your abstract and we’ll do our best to find a spot for you.

I am also planning to tape a couple of episodes of The AWS Report. If you would like to appear, let me know (send some email to

Registration will open up in June. In the meantime, mark your calendar, click here, enter your email address, and we’ll let you know when you can register.

I want to emphasize that this is not going to be one of those stuffy vendor conferences. I dont want to give away any secrets but you can rest assured that this is something you dont want to miss.  

We are planning to keep you well informed, well fed, entertained, and fully engaged for the duration of the conference.  There will be a wealth of opportunities for you to learn more about AWS, forge some connections with the service teams, meet others in the community and see what they are up to.  You might need a vacation after this it is Vegas after all and Vegas (and the Cloud) never sleeps.

Stay tuned for more details, including the agenda, and see you in Vegas
