AWS re:Invent review: Las Vegas 2016 and what to expect in 2017

What is AWS and AWS re:Invent?
For those who haven’t heard of it before, AWS stands for Amazon Web Services and is a subsidiary of Amazon. AWS itself is a cloud services platform handling everything from file hosting and traffic routing to machine learning and databases. Since 2012 AWS has hosted the AWS Re:Invent conference every year to announce new product offerings, certify developers on the AWS platform, and to provide top-tier training to developers of all experience and career levels. (Raygun provides support for AWS Code Deploy and AWS Lambda.)

AWS re:Invent 2016 continued to address the tremendous growth of attendees over previous years by increasing the number of sessions and adding additional venue locations. Even with those changes the conference was still packed to the brim with attendees clamouring to get access to standing-room-only sessions that had been booked solid week in advance. Despite the large amount of attendees and sessions, everyone was still overwhelming friendly, welcoming, and up for a quick chat about anything tech related.

The conference at a glance
The conference started off on Monday and Tuesday with a hackathon, a Alexa skills development competition, and numerous training sessions/bootcamps for attendees. The Global Partner Summit was also held on Tuesday for anyone who was part of the AWS Partner Network. Unlike the normal conference sessions, the Global Partner Summit sessions were geared towards executives, sales managers, and other technical professionals.

The main portion of the conference opened up Wednesday November 30th with a keynote by Andy Jassey, the CEO of Amazon Web Services. The rest of the days were filled with technical sessions, hands-on workshops, an amazing exhibit hall filled with sponsors, and continuing AWS certification tests being conducted. From 6:30 AM till late in the evening, you’d find the convention center halls at the Venetian and Mirage hotels teeming with energy as attendees rushed between session locations and took brief breaks in the halls to plan their next block of time.

Notable sessions
While the wait list lines to get into sessions were quite long and the sessions themselves were booked up full before the conference, I still managed to spend some time soaking up all the knowledge AWS provided. Among my favorite sessions were:

Serverless Authentication and Authorization: Identity Management for Serverless Architectures

In this session Justin Pirtle and Jim Tran showed attendees how to leverage serverless architecture to manage user identities, work with social media identity providers, and integrate with existing corporate directory systems. Techniques featuring Amazon Cognito, AWS API Gateway, and AWS Lambda, and AWS Identity and Access Management were taught using real world examples.

I’ve worked on applications before where legacy user authentication and authorization code were so interwoven into the backend that it was often more work to try to remove them than it was to just monkey patch around their shortcomings as needed. However, using the techniques from this session I can easily see a much more robust and maintainable system for handling these important yet time-consuming portions of an application.

All The Libraries Launched At AWS re:Invent 2020, So Far

At the ongoing annual cloud conference, AWS re:Invent event, the e-commerce giant has been announcing a staggering number of product launches, tools, frameworks, services and more. From AI chips to enterprise applications, the event is covering all the aspects and addressing needs of a developer to build innovative products.

Here is a list of six libraries and tools, in no particular order, that was launched so far at the AWS re:Invent 2020.

SageMaker Distributed Data-Parallel (SDP)

AWS re:Invent 2020 introduced two new distributed training libraries for Amazon SageMaker, one of them is the SageMaker Distributed Data-Parallel (SDP). The libraries are meant to provide integrated methods for the users to quickly train large deep learning models. SageMaker distributed data-parallel extends SageMaker’s training capabilities on deep learning models with near-linear scaling efficiency in order to achieve fast time-to-train with minimal code changes.

Top 10 Quotes By Andy Jassy At AWS re:Invent 2020

The ninth edition of AWS annual event re:Invent has kickstarted on November 30, albeit virtually. This three-week event began with the keynote address from AWS CEO Andy Jassy, where he informed his listeners about making a $46billion revenue run rate as per Q3 2020 and achieving a YoY growth rate of 29% Q3 2019 vs Q3 2020.

His slightly over three-hour address was filled with some of the most important product and services announcements. Apart from these announcements, Jassy also made a few noteworthy remarks. We list some of the most memorable quotes here.

AWS’ Exponential Growth Over Years

Jassy started his keynote, giving an insight into the growth of AWS over the years. Pondering over the relatively slower progress in the initial days, he said, “It took us 123 months a little over 10 yrs to go to a 10 billion dollar business…”

Having said that, Jassy then stated that the growth accelerated with time. He said that it took the company took the next 23 months to reach a 20 billion revenue, 13 months to reach 30 billion, and then only 12 months to reach 40 billion mark.

AWS Cost Allocation Tags and Cost Reduction

Bob had just arrived in the office for his first day of work as the newly hired chief technical officer when he was called into a conference room by the president, Martha, who immediately introduced him to the head of accounting, Amanda. They exchanged pleasantries, and then Martha got right down to business:

“Bob, we have several teams here developing software applications on Amazon and our bill is very high. We think it’s unnecessarily high, and we’d like you to look into it and bring it under control.”

Martha placed a screenshot of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) billing report on the table and pointed to it.

“This is a problem for us: We don’t know what we’re spending this money on, and we need to see more detail.”

Amanda chimed in, “Bob, look, we have financial dimensions that we use for reporting purposes, and I can provide you with some guidance regarding some information we’d really like to see such that the reports that are ultimately produced mirror these dimensions — if you can do this, it would really help us internally.”

“Bob, we can’t stress how important this is right now. These projects are becoming very expensive for our business,” Martha reiterated.

“How many projects do we have?” Bob inquired.

“We have four projects in total: two in the aviation division and two in the energy division. If it matters, the aviation division has 75 developers and the energy division has 25 developers,” the CEO responded.

Bob understood the problem and responded, “I’ll see what I can do and have some ideas. I might not be able to give you retrospective insight, but going forward, we should be able to get a better idea of what’s going on and start to bring the cost down.”

The meeting ended with Bob heading to find his desk. Cost allocation tags should help us, he thought to himself as he looked for someone who might know where his office is.
