Sessions for startups at re:Invent 2022

AWS re:Invent 2022 is fast approaching, and we can’t wait to see you in Las Vegas from November 28 through December 2! As usual, these four days will be jam-packed with activities, networking events, inspiring keynote speakers, breakout sessions that will allow you to connect with fellow attendees, interactive workshops, and more.

The best part? Every single event and activity is designed around–and geared toward—startup culture, making the entire conference 100% relevant to you.

re:Invent Attendee Guide

Serhat Can is the AWS Community Hero writing this year’s attendee guide. Serhat, who is based in Istanbul, is a co-founder at Resmo, a continuous cyber asset visibility and security solution for developers and world-class security teams.If he looks familiar, that may be because he speaks regularly at international conferences and organizes community events and meetups. He has also helped make devopsdays happen in over 80 cities around the world.

Content hub

With 50 content tracks and over 2,000 sessions offered in just four days, we know re:Invent can be a lot! That’s why we created content hubs, which offer livestreams of our most popular sessions.

Head over to any of our hubs—located at The Venetian, Caesars Forum, Wynn, MGM Conference Center, and Mandalay Bay—to chill and watch session streams while also grabbing a snack, sipping a drink, putting your feet up, or just taking a breather.

Breakout sessions

We all love an informative and rousing keynote address—but that doesn’t mean that the merits of a breakout session should be overlooked. With hour-long, lecture-style breakout sessions ranging from intermediate (200) through expert (400), we’re offering something for everyone. Stick around for the 15-minute Q&A at the end!

If you choose to attend a silent breakout session, you’ll be given headphones and welcomed into a room where each attendee can listen to whichever session they choose. There will be no Q&A at the end. Virtual attendees will have access to all of the following sessions on-demand a week after the conference ends.

Chalk talks

If your idea of a good time is getting the opportunity to ask all your most burning questions, we’ve got you. Our chalk talks are highly interactive. Each one opens with a short lecture from an AWS expert followed by a longer Q&A addressing real-world architecture challenges. Every hour-long talk features a main speaker as well as two AWS experts who will come prepared to answer your questions and even illustrate problems via whiteboard as the talk goes on.

There’s nothing quite like collaborative, hands-on learning, and we’re excited to bring that experience to you with this year’s selection of workshops. Every two-hour-long workshop opens with a short lecture given by an expert before the participants are split into teams. Each group is then given a scenario and encouraged to work together, using AWS services, to solve the problem. Participants should bring their laptops and be prepared to engage with one another.
