AWS re:Invent: 2020 Keynote Top Highlights and More

We’ve gotten through the first five days of the special all-virtual 2020 edition of AWS re:Invent. It’s always a really exciting time for practitioners in the field to see what features and services AWS has cooked up for the year ahead. 

This year’s conference is a marathon and not a sprint — it’s three weeks, from Nov. 30 – Dec 18, plus Jan. 12-14. Because of that, let’s focus on the big news: all the good stuff from AWS CEO Andy Jassy’s keynote. 

We’ve gone straight to our AWS Content & Security Lead, Stuart Scott, to give a concise overview of what’s important. Stuart knows what he’s talking about with AWS: he’s an AWS Community Builder, has authored 100 courses for Cloud Academy, and has had over 100,000 students take his courses. So let’s get to it — here are Stuart’s highlights in tweet form from the Andy Jassy keynote.
