Share a Refund is setting out for the thrilling and vibrant Las Vegas. From November 27 to December 1, developers and professionals will swarm Las Vegas for AWS re:Invent 2017. It’s the first time Share a Refund will have a presence at the always sold-out mega conference. The fusion of creativity and technical expertise makes this the most anticipated event for industry professionals.
Wait, what is AWS?
Amazon Web Service (AWS) is a cloud-based service that now is the underlying infrastructure for more than a million customers, including fast-growing startups, large enterprises, and government agencies across 190 countries. It helps businesses scale and grow. If AWS were a ship, let’s just say everybody’s jumping on board and AWS re:Invent is like the Super Bowl for developers. It can’t be missed.
What happens at AWS re:Invent?
This will be the first year experiencing the event directly. The continued expansion to bigger venues is a good indicator of the rising popularity of AWS. With over 1,000 sessions, those attending are sure to find something that fits their interests and learning objectives. Bootcamps are instructor-led courses focused on individual growth and a jam session is where you work with a new team to solve a technical problem. The different hackathons are highly anticipated events. The Smart Cities Hackathon will look to develop infrastructure and promote social good while the Non-Profit Hackathon will leverage the talent of developers to architect function prototypes for specific non-profit challenges.
AWS has a work hard, play hard mentality. Unwind after an intellectually stimulating day of solving security threats at the Security Jam session with the traditional game of broomball. If athletic activities aren’t high on your aptitude list, join other LEGO enthusiasts in building one of the largest LEGO Great Ball Contraption Builds ever done in Las Vegas using over 40,000 LEGO pieces. Who doesn’t love building with LEGO? Of course, those that have been the receiver of an unforeseen stray lego meeting a barefoot might not be a fan.
Share a Refund packs its bags
Share a Refund looks forward to making the most of its time at AWS re:Invent 2017 by maximizing every opportunity. What happens in Vegas won’t be staying in Vegas as the Share a Refund team will apply the dynamic, fresh learnings to future initiatives.
