I have, at long last, made it home from re:Invent yesterday afternoon. I’m not going to bother to rehash the releases; there are countless other places to get those. Instead, I want to call out some things that went really well at the conference that generally go unremarked upon.

The wifi was much better than last year. Yes, while admittedly I did have a bit of challenge uploading some 4K video on one very busy day, I can’t help but think that my use case isn’t exactly common–and is well outside the design tolerances of the network.

The event mobile app sent me a push notification about a pause in shuttle service due to a safety situation. Later we’d learn that someone was driving erratically, barricaded themselves in their vehicle for an hour or so in a standoff with the police, was arrested unharmed, and (presumably) when being led away tore off his shirt to reveal an Oracle Cloud logo as their guerrilla marketing campaign around re:Invent seeks to top itself every year. Nobody was hurt, and the push notification did its job.

Everyone I interacted with, from event staff to AWS folks to expo hall vendors to various customers? Incredibly friendly! I know it sounds weird to remark upon that, but the same can’t be said of other events.

It may be gauche to mention this, but in all three keynotes I attended (Peter DeSantis, Adam Selipsky, Swami Sivasubramanian) the speakers themselves demonstrated excellence as speakers. I’m not talking about the content, the pacing, the theming, or anything like that–as someone who’s made a craft out of speaking on stage at conferences, the public speaking element of it is incredibly technically challenging and highly intimidating. It’s clear it’s something that all three of them have focused upon, and the results absolutely show. Zero snark here–that stuff is HARD and I recognize it that way; all three have gotten to the point where they make it look easy. I promise you it’s not.

I was reminded about a uniquely Amazonian trait as well; when talking about my experiences with various services with random AWS people throughout the week, I was always met with the same response: "tell me more." It didn’t matter whether I was being complimentary, critical, or patently ridiculous; there’s a strong desire to learn more about the customer experience that’s the hallmark of AWS. It stands above and apart from the rest of the industry, and I strongly suspect that if you don’t demonstrate that curiosity melded with customer focus, you don’t stay at Amazon very long. It’s remarkably consistent!

Lastly, for the folks who came out to the co-hosted drinkup I held with RedMonk, thank you. I’ve often wondered what RedMonk and the Duckbill Group have in common. After all, they’re an analyst firm that’s developer focused (and if you’re not talking them you absolutely should be), while we fix AWS bills for a living (and if you’re not talking to us because your AWS bill isn’t a problem for you I’m deeply envious); what aligns us? The answer became remarkably clear: our respective (and in some cases shared) community is quite frankly just composed of the absolute best people. We’re incredibly fortunate to know you; every time we get to spend time with you we come away the better for it.

Enjoy the holidays; there’s much more to come.

Gartner predicts that through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault. Simple misconfigurations are one of the most common causes.  Whoa!, don’t be part of that statistic. Check out this 5 steps guide to securing AWS cloud infrastructure from Sysdig and make sure your AWS environment is battened down from attackers.
