Surf the Cloud Wave with Wavefront! Join Us at AWS re:Invent

By November 15, 2017 No Comments

We are rapidly approaching the most exciting cloud conference of the year –  AWS  re:Invent 2017. We, at Wavefront by VMware, know that this spectacular event can be overwhelming. To help you plan your time, below is the summary of several exciting sessions we have prepared for you. But before that, for those of you who managed to persuade your boss to send you to Vegas,  here are some useful tips for surviving this event:

  • Allow plenty of travel time between different sessions because this year event is spread across five hotels
  • Book your AWS breakout sessions in advance and adopt a zen attitude if your desired breakout session is full (chances are they might be)
  • Wear ultra comfortable shoes
  • Save some luggage space for all cool swag you will be bringing back (hint hint – see below)
