AWS Re:Invent 2017: Thursday Recap

As our ReTracers close out their duties as real-time distributed tracers of the AWS re:Invent campus, it’s really brought to light the critical work AppOptics does in monitoring bottlenecks and providing the visibility needed to ensure performance in complex environments. Our performance updates and bottlenecks from day three on the job:

  • The keynote was unmissable: Both from a length perspective and because of the sheer volume of options for viewing. From the MGM Garden Arena’s massive venue fit for a holographic boxing match, to SIX overflow locations across the Aria and Venetian, with many others opting to stream from the comfort of their hotel rooms, it was hard to miss the 2+ hour keynote.
  • Deep Learning, DeepLens and new sessions drew the crowds: It turns out a four-hour deep learning summit was the place to be today, with a line for walk-ups spanning from Venetian Ballroom F all the way to the DJ. Let’s just say it was more of the same at the AWS DeepLens workshop, but things got a bit…rowdy. Attendees were eager to learn about the new Amazon Sumerian and how to build AR/VR 3D apps, an obvious draw since AWS made a splash unveiling the news on Tuesday.
  • Alexa, give me prizes: For some people, the keynote was missable after all – particularly for those in the Aria who created a line nearly half the length of Level 3 for a chance to win a number of Alexa-enabled prizes.
  • Evening fun: Ahh…breathing room to enjoy a fun evening event (see yesterday’s entry on the pub crawl). If you stuck around for the certification happy hour and re:Play party, we hope you’re enjoying!

#TraceMyDay Thursday Results – Re:Invent

Thanks for following along with #TraceMyDay as we gave you live views on bottlenecks and fast track tips from re:Invent. It’s been fun, and we’ve racked up the walking miles, but it was all in the name of bringing the powers of AppOptics to life. See you at next year’s re:Invent!
