Embracing the Future of Tech: Attend AWS re:Invent 2023 as an All Builders Welcome Grant Recipient

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, they say. For me, that first step was the moment I received an email that would forever change my perspective on the future of cloud computing and digital transformation.

Last year, I received the All Builders Welcome grant to attend AWS re:Invent 2022!

But unfortunately, due to the delay in getting US visa, had to defer it to this year.

I am thrilled to share that I got the US visa this year and will be attending AWS re:Invent 2023 in Las Vegas as an ABW Grant recipient!

The All Builders Welcome Grant: A Gateway to Knowledge and Opportunity

AWS re:Invent is renowned as the largest gathering of the global cloud computing community. Each year, it attracts an array of visionaries, engineers, and experts who are at the forefront of technological advancement.

The grant includes registration for re:Invent 2023, airfare to Las Vegas, Nevada, and hotel accommodations for the duration of the conference.

Participants will have access to five days of re:Invent content and activities as well as a curated program designed to remove barriers and create opportunities for learning, career growth, and community building, including a welcome event, reserved seating in the keynotes, meetups, a mentoring luncheon with AWS leadership, and much more!
