Next week, Kablamo will be attending the AWS Re:Invent conference for the first time, in Las Vegas. It's a momentous occasion for us. We are now officially an AWS Advanced Tier Partner - a status shared by only a handful of consultancy and service providers in Sydney, Australia.
Welcome Drinks at Re:Invent - Monday 27th November
Kablamo is co-sponsoring an opening night celebration, with welcome drinks for Australia and New Zealand clients. From 6pm on Monday 27th November, we will be at Top-Golf at the MGM Grand, for a great evening of golfing, drinking, and swimming (potentially)... to ease us into the week.
We're taking a significant Kablamo contingency with us - 11 of the team in total. Our attending team represents a cross-section of the skills in our business that are applied to AWS and cloud-focused projects:-
Meet the Team
Why We’re Excited
There are many reasons we’re attending AWS, but the team is particularly excited about the following:
- Keynote speakers – being the first to hear about new AWS products and features. In previous years, the key notes have been amazing!
- Machine learning – all of it!
- Image recognition
- Self-driving cars
- Kubernetes/serverless talks
- Seeing who the ‘mystery’ gig is
- Experiencing the vibe of a 40,000-attendee event
Being Healthy and Fit
As well as all the learning and socialising, some of us will also be participating in the healthier and fitter side of the event... There will be an athletic competition series daily. Allan Waddell and Tom Giordmaina, in particular, will be competing in the 5K race, spin challenge, and boot camp (phew). Neither of them are particularly good athletes, so if you'd like to see the embodiment of 'sorry', come on down, it will be a laugh!
In the spirit of brand awareness, we'll be bringing a whole load of Kablamo merchandise with us to share out - T Shirts, Lanyards, Pins and Stickers. Grab some SWAG!
The Next Instalment
We look forward to seeing you there! And if we don't, we'll be happy to share our learnings, amazing experience and news from the event.
