AWS re:Invent 2019 will deliver technical, hands-on content about services, solutions, and topics that are important to you. We are bringing back repeat, overflow, and late-night sessions to ensure that you have as many opportunities as possible to attend sessions that interest you. Once we launch the session schedule, you will also find curated agenda guides, and there will be onsite schedule experts to ensure that you can find sessions on topics that you find most important.
The 2019 session catalog will go live this summer and we will continue to add to it throughout the year. To get an idea of the sessions offered, visit the re:Invent 2018 session catalog.
Topics, Filters, and Crosstags
Each year at re:Invent, we bring you over a thousand sessions, chalk talks, workshops, builders sessions, and hackathons that cover AWS core topics and highlight the emerging technologies we are developing. re:Invent 2019 will be no different.
The session catalog will contain several levels of tags to help you filter through all the breakout content and find what is most important to you. You will find the broad topics that you are used to, like databases, analytics, machine learning, and storage. Like last year, these topics will be cross-tagged, so if you are interested in databases and storage, you can do a cross-search in the session catalog.
For the first time, this year we are also creating subtopic tags to help you dive deeper into the broad topics. For example, if you are interested in nonrelational databases, you will be able to filter sessions that specifically address that topic.
There are additional filters we are bringing back that will help you drill into the session catalog, including job role, session level, industry, and new to AWS. We will also add venue and day filters once the session schedule is set.
All sessions will be tagged with the various topics, subtopics, and filters, and you will be able to choose the filters that enable you to find the breakout content most relevant to your interests.
Repeat, Overflow, and Late Night Sessions
This year, we will be repeating our most popular sessions in every venue on the campus regardless of topic, giving you the opportunity to attend the sessions that are most important to you. In addition, topics are no longer organized by venue, and you will find all types of breakout content in all five venues: the ARIA, the Bellagio, MGM Grand, the Mirage, and the Venetian. This provides you with more flexibility to plan your daily schedule.
We are also expanding our session overflow program. All of the most popular sessions will be shown in overflow rooms, both in the venue where they take place and in other venues across the re:Invent campus. These overflow sessions will be available early so that you can plan your day accordingly.
We will also offer late-night sessions, chalk talks, and workshops so that you can maximize the number of breakout sessions you attend. For your convenience, these late-night sessions will be offered across all topics in select venues on the re:Invent campus.
The reserved seating process will return in 2019 so that you can reserve seats in the sessions most important to you. Reserved seating will open in the fall. More details will be available as we approach that time.
