For the second year in a row, AWS asked us to design and build the official mobile app for re:Invent, its flagship user conference. And while we transformed the event in 2017, we were determined to reinvent the experience once again with this year’s release.
So, we thought big. Even bigger than before.
Launched this week, the updated, feature-packed AWS re:Invent 2018 mobile app serves a companion in planning and navigating the event experience. You can use it to do all you did last year - browse sessions, build your planner, reserve seats, explore the campus, and stay connected to AWS.
New this year, we’ve also added features to help you manage your planner and get transportation time estimates. Anyone who has ever been to re:Invent knows just how time consuming it can be to travel from venue to venue, but we have a good feeling the transportation time estimates will make getting around all the more effortless.
Those of you cloud experts might also like to know that the app leverages 20+ AWS services, including microservices and the serverless stack. After all, this is an AWS event, so would you expect anything less?
If you’re attending re:Invent, we encourage you to download the app and let us know what you think. And be sure to keep an eye out for future releases, as they’ll be coming soon.
