Bootcamps » VIRTUAL ESCAPE ROOM

Description

This half-day, intermediate-level bootcamp is designed to train customers and partners in recently launched AWS services and modern architectures. This bootcamp will feature services such as Amazon Athena, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Lex and serverless architecture, using AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB and API Gateway. While deeply immersed in a 3D virtual escape game, the player must solve several puzzles using new AWS services and modern architectures to escape from a series of locked-down floors in a futuristic building. This is an enablement session disguised as a game that improves knowledge retention and familiarity with new AWS services. Prizes and giveaways will be distributed to the top finishers of the game at the end of bootcamp.
