re:Invent 2018

November 26, 2018 - November 30, 2018

Event Navigation

The Venetian

At re:Invent 2018, you can expect deeper technical content, more hands-on learning opportunities, and more access to AWS experts than ever. The return of our two-hour workshops and our hackathon program means that you can dive into solving challenges and working on a team. The chalk talks and builders sessions give you the opportunity to interact in a small group setting with AWS experts as they whiteboard through problems and solutions. We have many more opportunities this year for you to interact, build, and learn, so you can get the most out of re:Invent.

REPEAT SESSIONS, OVERFLOW SESSIONS, AND LATE NIGHT SESSIONS

This year, we will be repeating our most popular sessions in every venue all across the campus, giving you the opportunity to attend the sessions that are most important to you. In addition, topics are no longer organized by venue, and you will find all types of breakout content in all five venues: ARIA, Bellagio, MGM, Mirage, and The Venetian. The most popular sessions will be repeated in every venue regardless of topic, giving you more flexibility to plan your daily schedule.

We are also expanding our session overflow program. All of the most popular sessions will be shown in overflow rooms both in the venue where they take place and in other venues across the re:Invent campus. These overflow sessions will be available early, so you can plan your day accordingly.

We will also offer late night sessions, chalk talks, and workshops, so you can maximize the breakout sessions you attend. For your convenience, these late night sessions will be offered across all topics in select venues of the re:Invent campus.

TOPICS

Each year at re:Invent, we bring you over a thousand sessions, chalk talks, workshops, builders sessions, and hackathons that cover AWS core topics and embrace the emerging technologies we are developing. re:Invent 2018 will be no different. You will find sessions that cover topics that you have seen in past years: databases, analytics & big data, security & compliance, enterprise, machine learning, and compute, to name a few. This year, you will be able to cross-search these topics in the session catalog, so you can really drill down and find the sessions most pertinent to you.

After Parties and re:Invent Events

Harley Ride
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25 12 NOON–5:30PM

The 2018 AWS Harley Ride will take place on Sunday, November 25 and is the perfect way to kick off your AWS re:Invent experience. Attendees will meet at the Venetian Tour Lobby on Sunday at 12 Noon to board a bus that will transfer them to the Las Vegas Eagle Rider.

Upon check in, each rider will be provided a light lunch to help you fuel up before the afternoon ride. After check in, riders will gather their helmets and prep their bikes to get ready to hit the Las Vegas roads.

This year there are two incredible scenic route options:

  • Ride #1 – Explores a 145-mile loop circling the historic Valley of Fire State Park. Once the group arrives at the Valley of Fire, riders can choose whether to return to Eagle Rider via the scenic route or expedite the trip back via the freeway. Both options will be escorted by an Eagle Rider representative. Please note, this ride will return to Eagle Rider after sunset. This trip includes riding in the dark. Should you be uncomfortable riding in the dark, select Ride #2.
  • Ride #2 – This is a great option for those looking for a shorter riding experience. This route is 54 miles total and takes you around stunning Red Rock Canyon.

Midnight Madness
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25 10:30PM–1AM

Once again this year, to welcome our most dedicated fans, we will be hosting an AWS style pep rally to kick off the week. Midnight Madness provides a sneak peek into re:Invent, complete with fun, drinks, and snacks. Come hear AWS executives give a behind-the-scenes take on AWS, discover the first launch of the week, see a marching band, and dance until 1AM!

We will also host our Tatonka Challenge at Midnight Madness. In fact, this year we’ll be attempting to break three different Guinness World Records during Midnight Madness – Largest Air Drum Ensemble; Most People Lighting Glow Sticks Simultaneously; and Largest Chicken Wing Eating Competition.

This is your chance to kick off re:Invent with your fellow AWS fans and participate in the breaking of Guinness World Records. Midnight Madness is open only to the first 8,000 fans.
