AWS re:Invent 2017 is the largest gathering of the global Amazon developer community. You get the opportunity to connect with peers and technology experts, engage in hands-on labs and bootcamps, and learn about new technologies and how to improve productivity, network security, and application performance, all while keeping infrastructure costs low.
The Alexa track at AWS re:Invent will dive deep into the technology behind the Alexa Skills Kit and the Alexa Voice Service, with a special focus on using AWS offerings to enable voice experiences. We’ll cover AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, AWS CloudFormation, Amazon LEX, Amazon Polly, Amazon S3, Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon CloudFront, and more.
You’ll also hear best practices from experienced Alexa developers such as Intel, Capital One, Arizona State University, Honeywell, Earplay, Mobiquity, Salesforce, AllRecipes, Gemmy, Automated Insights, Pullstring, and Instructure as well as presentations from senior Amazon evangelists and engineers.
44 unique courses
This year, Alexa will be a part of the Emerging Tech track at Aria. Not only will you learn about our newest technologies, you’ll also learn in new ways! In addition to breakout sessions and workshops, we will have several hands-on opportunities. Small group sessions will give you the opportunity to sit down with a topic expert and learn how to build an Alexa skill or work hands-on with the latest IoT technology.
We will host three (3) invite-only product roundtables with business and technology leaders to gather feedback that will influence the Alexa roadmap. Roundtable discussions will be held at a to-be-announced location from 8am-10am, November 28-30. These are 90-minute breakfast meetings with a brief introduction followed by an interactive feedback session lead by representatives from the Alexa product team.
