[THREAD] what's the difference between all the #aws events like #reInvent and #AWSSummit etc? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

answering this one in super duper thread format down below πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
so first off, there are a ton of #aws events happening all around the world, all the time. i definitely try to make it to a lot of them! i am rich in frequent flyer miles 🌎✈️

here's a rundown of a few of the different types:
πŸ—£οΈ an #AWSSummit is a 1-2 day event w/ multiple tracks of breakouts, a keynote + often workshops/labs/partner talks. summits are generally pretty big, + there should be something for almost everyone, at various skill levels and jobs. global list here:
πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» #AWSbuildersday + dev days are (afaik) the same thing. these are 1-day events that are more developer focused-usually multiple tracks of breakout sessions, + a lab/workshop. since these are more dev focused, they tend to have more advanced technical content and demos πŸ› οΈ
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ«there are also more specialized events: like #AWSstartupday (, which focus on startup resources, like VC panels + making the most of your funding πŸ’΅

πŸ›οΈthis also means more industry-tailored events like the enterprise + public sector summits!
ok so #AWSreinvent is the big one! vegas, baby 🎰

#reinvent includes tons of sessions, customer talks, multiple keynotes, workshops, labs, certifications, expo, live coverage on + more πŸ˜…

there is also a ton of non-#aws run events: these are things like an #AWSusergroup or meetup, or even an AWS talk at a 3rd party event πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

πŸ‘­ see the list of user groups here:…
so what's the right one? βš–οΈ

depends on what you're looking to get out of it! do you want super technical demos or a chance to network? no one event is best-just different!

plus, lots of people go to a few! like a local builders day + meetup + also the closest summit πŸš—πŸ’»
πŸ‘€ want to see the big picture of what's coming up? πŸ”œ
