AWS re:invent 2016

I spent last week at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas. It was an amazing week of learning, new experiences, and sensory overload. The logistics of 32,000 IT folks descending on the Venetian, the Mirage, and the Encore were simply staggering. Overall, the week went very smoothly, and I was very impressed with how easy it was to participate.

Over the next weeks and months, I have a lot to explore and write about from just this one week. From the amazing hackathon to the deep dive sessions to new things announced, the volume of information imparted was incredible. It was great that many sessions were recorded.

I am somewhat daunted by the task ahead of trying to dive in and document so many amazing things. On the other hand, I am excited by all of the powerful tools and techniques that I am going to attempt to explore and understand. Hopefully, I will document my journey and experience in a way that will be useful to others.
