Learn with AWS
Explore the learning opportunities at re:Invent 2022. Stay tuned for more updates and information about this year's event coming soon.
With over 50 content tracks and more than 2,000 sessions, AWS re:Invent 2022 is your opportunity to catch up on the latest technologies in cloud computing. Choose the learning methods that work for you, from interactive, small-group chalk talks to lecture-style breakouts. Sessions are available from intermediate (200) through expert (400) levels, so you can grow your skills no matter where you are in your knowledge or career. Attend in person for unique, interactive experiences or catch all the breakout sessions with on-demand streaming.
AWS re:Invent breakout sessions are lecture-style and one hour long. These sessions take place across the re:Invent campus and cover all topics at all levels (200–400). Sessions are delivered by AWS experts, customers, and partners, and they typically include 10–15 minutes of Q&A.
Silent breakout sessions follow the same format, except that multiple sessions take place in a single room where headsets are provided so you can “tune in” to the content of your choice. You can switch audio to change the session you’re listening to in that room. Silent sessions run for one hour with no Q&A.
For virtual attendees, breakout sessions will be available on demand in the week after re:Invent. Access to on-demand breakout sessions is included for in-person attendees.
Workshops are two-hour interactive sessions where you work in teams to solve problems using AWS services. Workshops organize attendees into small groups and provide scenarios to encourage interaction, giving you the opportunity to learn from and teach each other. Each workshop starts with a short lecture (10–15 minutes) by the main speaker, and the rest of the time is spent working as a group. There are additional AWS experts in the room to make sure every group has the assistance it needs. Come prepared with your laptop and a willingness to learn! We will provide any AWS credits you may need.
These are one-hour small group sessions with up to nine attendees per table and one AWS expert, who is there to answer questions and provide guidance. It’s just you, your laptop, and the AWS expert.
Each builders’ session begins with a short explanation or demonstration of what you are going to build. There won’t be any formal presentation. Once the demonstration is complete, use your laptop to experiment and build with the AWS expert.
Chalk talks are a highly interactive content format with a small audience. Each begins with a short lecture (10–15 minutes) delivered by an AWS expert, followed by a 45- or 50-minute Q&A session with the audience. The goal is to foster a technical discussion around real-world architecture challenges. Chalk talks are one hour long and contain expert-level content presented by AWS experts.
Chalk talks have one main speaker and one or two additional AWS experts who work through problems and solutions on a whiteboard as the discussion unfolds. There will be hundreds of chalk talks at re:Invent 2022, so be sure to carefully choose the ones that are most interesting to you and come with questions!
