AWS re:Invent 2018
Las Vegas, NV
November 26-30

Alexa is excited to announce our continued participation in AWS re:Invent 2018, the largest gathering of the global Amazon developer community. AWS re:Invent provides an opportunity to connect with peers and technology experts, engage in hands-on labs and bootcamps, and learn about new technologies. This year, we will have over 40 Alexa technical sessions, including hands-on workshops, interactive chalk talks, and technical breakouts to help attendees learn to design voice experiences and dive deep into the technology behind the Alexa Skills Kit, Alexa Voice Service, and Alexa Smart Home.

In addition to accessing new content and training, re:Invent is a great place to meet and interact with Alexa evangelists, the Alexa product team, and the Alexa developer community. We will have exciting Alexa interactive activations throughout the conference. Select Alexa sessions are now live on the re:Invent session catalog, and more will be added over the summer. Visit the AWS re:Invent website to register now. Learn more»
