Lessons from AWS Re:Invent

Dmitry Varennikov, Web Backend Team Lead
Watch For It
November 27-December 1, 2017
If you’re planning on attending AWS re:Invent, a learning conference hosted by Amazon Web Services for the global cloud computing community, you know you’re going to come home with some thought provoking ideas.
Which is exactly what happened to our Web Backend Team Lead, Dmitry, when he chose AWS re:Invent as his 2016 Ticket to Ride (TTR). Our TTR program sends each of our team members off to experience one of our apps in action at the event they’re created for.
Dmitry picked AWS re:Invent for his TTR because he was intrigued by the opportunity to experience our infrastructure at a large event with keynote announcements, more than 30,000 attendees, training and certification opportunities, more than 400 technical sessions, and more.
The event, aimed at developers and engineers, system administrators, systems architects, and technical decision makers, lived up to Dmitry’s expectations. He found that deep links in the AWS re:Invent app helped him orient himself inside the event venues, which included more than 600 sessions across three different venues. He also found our My Schedule feature useful for creating his own schedule and planning his agenda.
As always with our TTR program, half of the experience is actually being at the event, and the other half relates to the great ideas Eventbasers bring back home. For Dmitry as “our web backend team is entering the micro-services world, I learned architectural patterns used in micro-services and details of how to migrate from monolith architecture to micro-services architecture.”
