My company sent me to the AWS re:invent 2018 in Las Vegas so I created this small site to put together all the notes I initially wrote as Markdown files along with extra info, slides, photos and videos so I can easily share it with coworkers and friends when they ask about it and also go through it when I need it.


Most of the content is for the sessions I participated during the conference.

Everything is tagged with the technologies/topics discussed, the level of the session (introductory, advanced & expert)

All the posts are tagged with the technologies and topics discussed.
