AWS GameDay pits technical teams against each other in a live competition to assault the infrastructure and interrupt the workloads of your opponents, while keeping your team's systems online and functional. Make the cloud your battlefield and learn practical infrastructure crisis management, high availability design, system monitoring and alerting, and IT security in a fast paced, high stakes, game of skill.
You will build a distributed cloud based system, it will be broken horribly by your competition, and then you will work to repair and stabilize the system in real-time. Network with other DevOps ninjas to pick up new tricks and strategies, and work with AWS architects to help solidify your designs and breathe life back into your systems.
GameDay is open to anyone with an AWS re:Invent conference pass, but signups are limited to the first 250 players. Food and beverages will be offered throughout the day.
