Add Your Comments

Cloud infrastructure provider Amazon Web Services announced on Thursday it will host AWS re: Invent, its first global customer and partner conference.

With Amazon Web Services being the leading cloud infrastructure platform on the market, the conference would certainly be of interest to many cloud providers, and serve as an educational event where they can also network.

Taking place November 27 through 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Venetian hotel, the conference will include more than 100 sessions such as hands-on workshops, cloud computing strategy sessions and technical deep dives delivered by the AWS team and AWS customers and partners.

Attendees will learn how to leverage AWS services and features for a range of popular use cases such as big data analytics, high performance computing, disaster recovery, web applications, mobile and game development, and enterprise IT applications, said Amazon.

The AWS engineering and service teams will lead hands-on workshops throughout the conference and will be available in the developer lounge to answer technical questions each day of the conference.

“There’s an unbelievable amount of invention taking place every day on AWS by hundreds of thousands of new and existing businesses,” said Ariel Kelman, head of worldwide marketing at Amazon Web Services. “And, anybody who has studied the history of business, and especially that of technology, knows that if you’re not reinventing your products, processes, people allocation, cost structure, skill-sets, and speed to market, it’s difficult to survive in the long term as a successful company. AWS re: Invent is an opportunity for our current and future customers to learn proven strategies for taking advantage of the AWS cloud and take home new ideas that will help them invent within their own businesses and deliver more value to their customers.”

Registration for AWS re: Invent will soon be open, while Amazon is currently encouraging customers and partners to visit the website and submit their presentation ideas by May 31.

Amazon Web Services recently added more features for Windows developers with Amazon RDS for SQL server and .NET support for AWS Elastic Beanstalk.
