Architecting Your AWS re:Invent Experience

Or, how to consume re:Invent content to build better apps today
5 min

AWS has turned running their annual re:Invent conference into a science. The 2020 virtual version will certainly be different from the Las Vegas versions, but they will still be sharing the latest and greatest new functionality for you to build better apps. However, AWS ships so much new stuff every year (and nothing seems to slow them down!) it can be hard to figure out how to consume and synthesize all the information in order scale your modern applications. Never fear! We at Stackery have perfected the art of drinking from the re:Invent firehose and are here to help you!

Whether deserved or not (and I lean towards the "not deserved" side), AWS has a reputation in some corners of reaping monetary success off the free and open source contributions of others. The rationale for this argument is that AWS has paid nothing for nor involved the open source community around key projects it relies on when it provides services to customers.
