Sad because you missed re:Invent 2019🎉?
Well cheer up, my friends... it's time for a re:Cap!
Here's what I'm going to do.In my PREVIOUS post, I shared major highlights from the AWS robotics🤖 track! And in THIS post, I'll summarize great sessions targeted for 'Getting Started on AWS'. These sessions are NOW available on YouTube!
FYI, by 'Getting Started' sessions, I mean sticking to 200 level talks that are more intro friendly. I realize most of these sessions expect some level of IT/DevOps knowledge, but I tried to 🍒cherry pick🍒 the sessions that would be easier to grasp if you're newer to AWS.
