New Features That Will Help You Build Better From Day One at AWS re:Invent

At re:Invent or attending remotely? Check out my “Ultimate Guide to AWS re:Invent 2022” post for some tips and tricks to get the most out of the show.

You’ve probably read it in the guide ๐Ÿ‘† or heard me saying it a bunch in person or on Twitter, AWS pushes out a lot of updates during AWS re:Invent.

When I shared this thread ๐Ÿ‘‡ on Twitter just before 2pm eastern, AWS had already published 52 different updates. WTF?!? That’s crazy. Good crazy, but still crazy.

More on the way for sure…
