AWS re:Invent 2017 Recap

AWS re:Invent 2017 was held in Las Vegas for over 40,000 attendees.  The event came to a close after a very busy week including keynotes jam-packed with numerous product announcements (70!), more than 1,000 breakout sessions, and networking for all things AWS. The expo hall hosted the AWS Village, Developer Lounge, Sponsor booths, Content Theaters, Demo Theaters and more.

According to a re:Invent recap from ZDNet, the primary themes were:

  • Serverless deployments;
  • Artificial intelligence everywhere;
  • Database options all aimed at taking data share from Oracle;
  • Computing at the edge via IoT;
  • Alexa and voice as the interface going forward;
  • And building an architecture and roadmap for how developers want to work in 2020.

In sum, the common theme across every AWS move this week is data as currency and providing a one-click way to manage it. Read full article here.
