Bootcamps

Bootcamps are full and half-day training sessions delivered by experienced AWS Instructors and Solutions Architects. They are an opportunity to dive deep into existing skills and learn new ways of working with AWS. These sessions are offered for a fee on July 10, the day before the summit.

Hands-On Labs

Hands-on Labs help you evaluate and learn how to work with AWS solutions through step-by-step, self-paced instructions on an AWS Console in a live practice environment. Choose from 100+ lab topics that range in level from introductory to expert and take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Registration is not required; walk-ups are welcome.

Visit the AWS Certification Lounge in the Expo to network with other certified individuals. AWS Certified status will be checked at the entrance.

Breakout Content

Sessions

Attend one-hour breakout sessions led by AWS subject-matter experts and/or top AWS customers. You’ll find introductory sessions, deep dive technical content, and customer stories.

Workshops

Learn in a team-oriented, hands-on environment. Solve problems and build solutions in these two hour-long workshops. They are capped at about 60 attendees to maximize networking and learning opportunities.

Chalk Talks

Chalk Talks are short presentations designed to stimulate conversation, followed by an interactive whiteboarding session. The goal is to foster a technical discussion around real world architecture challenges. It’s a great opportunity to ask an AWS expert your questions.

Get behind the keyboard for an immersive experience with AWS DeepRacer. In this workshop, you get hands-on-experience with reinforcement learning. Developers with no prior machine learning (ML) experience learn new skills and apply their knowledge in a fun and exciting way. You join a pit crew where you build and train ML models that you can then take to the track for a chance to climb the AWS DeepRacer League leaderboard.
