  • AWS re:Invent 2016 Keynote with Werner Vogels
    This is a liveblog of the Thursday keynote at AWS re:Invent 2016. Today’s keynote is led by Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon Web Services. Unlike yesterday, today I opted not to attend the keynote in the main hall, viewing the keynote instead from an “overflow” area. Turns out the “overflow” area has drinks, tables, and power! That’s a far better option that being crammed in the main hall, though in the past I’ve found it more difficult to liveblog when not viewing the keynote directly. We’ll see if that continues to hold true.
