AWS re:Invent 2016 – Day 1 Start

November 29, 2016 |
AWS re:Invent Welcome

Greetings from Las Vegas! Today is the official start of the AWS re:Invent 2016 conference, and it is already off to a great start.

30,000 attendees are expected to gather at the Venetian and Sands Expo centers for three days of all things AWS cloud.

Cryptzone has a huge presence at the conference, with over a dozen people attending, including most of the executive team. We are in booth 1918 on the show floor, so stop by and say hello. I will personally be there for quite a bit of the show, or out roaming the floor. If you are looking for me, check there first, and if I am not there, the guys at the booth will be able to find me. And if you’re looking for someone else from the Cryptzone team, we’ll get you connected.

If you are at the conference, and looking for a solution for pretty much anything that is cloud related, this is the place to be.  There are hundreds of exhibitors, representing the best in class that AWS has to offer.

This conference is also one of those that brings out the world’s experts at AWS and cloud computing. Some may seem a little scary, but I promise, they are the absolute best at what they do and are here to figure out better ways to help solve your cloud challenges. Don’t be afraid of chatting with them before a session or at one of the meals.

I don’t intend on writing a huge blog every day, but I will share some of the things I find particularly interesting as the show continues. You can also follow me on Twitter – @CloudSecChris – where I will be giving almost constant updates.

Stay tuned!
