AWS Summit extended to two days for the first time this year and the turn out was amazing! Summit really is the place to be for anyone interested in Amazon Web Services and cloud infrastructure in general.
AWS Partner Keynote
Partner Summit started with a bang with a tribal drum ensemble to get us revved up! High five to our co-founder Pete Gatt being recognized as an AWS Cloud Warrior - a reward for the great support, services and products that Pete has helped bring to AWS, and he uses daily to help customers achieve their best when using AWS.
Cloud Warrior Program from Pete
"Being part of the Cloud Warrior Program, it was amazing to chat about the future of AWS with the other Warriors. We had an extended conversation with Ajar Nair (Principal Technical Product Manager for Lambda) and Stefano Buliani (Product Manager for API Gateway). There was some great in depth discussion and technical debate, which I've learnt to be a bit of a standard now for the warriors!
The AWS Cloud Warriors program has always been exciting as we cover topics that concern our customers, as well as giving great feedback to AWS about where we believe they could greatly improve the architecture or offerings in the coming years. I look forward to seeing some of our suggestions get on their roadmap."
Hava StartUp Stand
It really was phenomenal how many people stopped at the Hava stand at Summit. The feedback was amazing and we really count ourselves lucky to get to demo Hava to so many new companies - everyone is really excited out CloudFormation Export / Import function! We were rocking out our new shirts, giving away two week trials, and giving away some fun prizes. If you didn't get the chance to talk to us to grab a trial - we've extended the offer for the next couple of weeks. Congrats to our prize winners!
Thanks to AWS
Again a HUGE thank you to our friends at AWS. We love working with you and look forward to being a part of your partner eco-system, providing AWS customers with all of the amazing and beautiful visualization and monitoring that they deserve. We think you're awesome!
