Rackspace Technology is entering its sixth year sponsoring AWS re:Invent - and for the first time, re:Invent will be online and free to attend. This year's event offers more opportunities for you to explore, with its three-week digital conference format and 'follow the sun' agenda. It's designed not only to replicate, but also enhance the traditional, in-person experience - complete with after-hours fun and networking opportunities.
We've developed an engaging, educational experience showcasing how we help customers innovate and build the future of technology on AWS. At the conference, you'll also hear about exciting new solutions that we've developed to support your AWS journey. Highlights of our 2020 agenda include:
Put your skills to the test by solving challenges that emulate real AWS use-cases in our interactive Jam Lounge challenge. In our challenge, you'll use Amazon Transcribe to navigate a virtual maze with 'magical' voice commands to move Merlin, the wizard, through a perilous dungeon to freedom.
Enter our virtual experience to view a video from Kevin Jones, our CEO, access whitepapers and customer case studies, and check out our live meeting room to learn more about our AWS expertise. A schedule of topics is available on our AWS re:Invent hub.
At the virtual booth, you can open up a virtual chat with our team of specialists about your AWS challenges, questions and concerns.
Join Tolga Tarhan, Chief Technology Officer, and Amir Kashani, Vice President, AWS Cloud Native Development at Rackspace Technology to learn about best practices and lessons learned from years of experience designing and building serverless solutions on AWS. The live Q&A session is on December 16, 2:15 P.M. - 2:45 P.M. PST.
This is an unprecedented time for the travel and hospitality industry: travelers and guests, providers and suppliers, employees and stakeholders alike. At this virtual session, Wyndham's EVP and CIO and an AWS Guru team up to share strategic observations and technical insights, to help those in travel and hospitality - and beyond - build resilience for the long run.
Join us to learn how Onica, a Rackspace Technology company, helped OpenSesame Media, Inc., pioneers in social audio experiences, build and scale their karaoke app from soft launch to massive availability across 5G phones around the world. Discover how a similar cloud-native approach can help your startup dream big, begin small and scale at rapid speed.
