We received access to some sample data and feeds from Formula 1® which puts us in strong position to finally bolt together our pit-lane dashboard assets but with the next race just 48 hours away, we need to work quickly. –Good luck!­ You and your team will have 90 minutes to put your skills to the test and ensure Unicorn.Rentals.Racing is ready to leverage that data and provide essential racing tooling for our team!

Get hands on with LaunchDarkly in the New Frontier GameDay challenge

AWS GameDay: The New Frontier

Experience The New Frontier, the new GameDay challenge that premiered at AWS re:Invent 2022 in Las Vegas (USA). Designed for a general audience, participants can expect an array of technical challenges encompassing AI/ML, data consolidation, data stream processing, security, IoT, CI/CD, and much more.

Prepare our team for The New Frontier!

After re:Invent 2021, our unicorn fleet began leaving suspicious deposits of their mana at our company headquarters, as if trying to share a message. R&D ran tests on the mana and discovered a way of processing it to create a new form of advanced microchip. A new business ensued and profits soared. However, like in previous years, our quick expansion caused IT issues and customer complaints. It’s up to our new hires (GameDay attendees) to dive deep into our production systems on their first day and fix all of our technical problems in this 2.5 hour challenge.

Team requirements:

  1. Please ensure you have 4 people in your team.
  2. Each team member should register and attend the AWS Summit London.
  3. In order to participate, you will have to have an intermediate understanding of AWS services and console.
  4. GameDay participants are required to bring their own laptops. We will have some loaner laptops onsite subject availability.
