Summary of January 2019 Meetup
The January 2019 meetup was held at the newly opened Amazon Internet Services Private Ltd office.
AWS re:Invent 2018 recap started with a warm welcome by Jeevan Dongre, AWS Community Hero and Lead - AWS User Group Bengaluru and introduced our speaker of the day, Madhusudan Sekhar, Principal Technical Evangelist and Head Digital Innovation, Amazon Internet Services Private Limited.
Madhu took us on quick ride around **how did AWS enthusiasts re:Invent in Las Vegas **right from Harley ride to re:Play party and from deep-dive sessions, expert sessions, hackathons to hands-on-labs.
Probably this would have kindled an eagerness in the attendees to look forward for re:Invent 2019 early bird registration?
Bhuvaneswari Subramani shared her experience as an AWS diversity scholarship recipient at re:Invent 2018 and you may read more about stories in the blog - Journey through re:Invent 2018 .
Madhu took over the stage back to help us dive deep into all new announcements for AWS Services and of course the next 3 hours was lively to witness the tale from the technocrat!
