Hello again everyone, as I said in yesterdays post
Today I will round up some of the services and activities from yesterday and my conference “experiences” to date.
Amazon made a series of announcements about new products and services in 2 areas.
1. AV and VR
Amazon Sumerian: Currently in Preview only this new application lets you create and run virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and 3D applications quickly and easily without requiring any specialized programming or 3D graphics expertise. You can, for instance, build a virtual classroom to train new employees globally, or build a virtual environment to tour a building remotely. all this can be achieved directly from your browser learn more here…
2. Media Services
AWS Elemental Media Suite: Currently on general release with five service offerings:
These services can all function independently or as part of AWS Media Services.
As I said yesterday this is just day one expect a lot more services to be announced as the week continues from the keynote addresses etc… I will keep you posted.
Not much swag yesterday I went to the certification lounge and all I got was a T-shirt. t may sound odd but when you compare my haul from last year then you can see why…Amazon, take note Swag is important…not good enough!!! We love getting the different levels of swag that reflect our achievements.
In other news, I met a person of interest an explosives protection dog called “Garzon” a six-year-old Belgian Malinois Explosives detection dog working the event. He even had his own baseball card.
Picture of the Cisco stand I mentioned yesterday
There seemed to be DJs everywhere, which was cool, music to set the tone of the area I guess
Tomorrow is when Vendor Expo opens up so there will be lots of interviews and videos
Finally, I will be tweeting live as much as I can so you can follow me on twitter @awsforbusiness or @chidi_oparah to get the updates before I upload content in my daily roundup and Linkedin
