re:Invent Roulette

Michael Wittig – 14 Nov 2019

Going to AWS re:Invent is an excellent opportunity to discover the latest services, to deepen your knowledge, and to meet interesting people from all over the world.

Our goal is to connect you with an open-minded professional. With re:Invent Roulette, we are connecting you with another attendee based on your favorite topic (e.g., DevOps, Serverless, Big Data, AI, …).

re:Invent Roulette

We have invented the re:Invent Roulette for outgoing as well as introvert people.

How does it work?

It’s easy to get involved.

  1. You fill out the re:Invent Roulette application form.
  2. Based on your information, we will match you with another professional who applied for re:Invent Roulette as well.
  3. We will introduce both of you via e-mail.
  4. You meet with an open-minded professional at re:Invent.

What to talk about?

A few ideas to talk about.

  • Discuss the announcements from the keynotes.
  • Ask about the projects your opposite is working on.
  • Share a success story or even better a post mortem of an incident.
  • Ask for the other one’s favorite tools.

That’s it. Remember to fill out the re:Invent Roulette application form. And, please share!
