Journey through re:Invent 2018

 I am humbled & pleased for the invite from
hashtagaws @AWSreInvent as one of the 5 recipients of AWS re:Invent 2018 Community Leader Diversity Scholarship and glad to meet Ana Luca Diegues , Zamira Jaupaj, Jocylyn Sy and many congratulations to Ayeni Oluwakemi, who couldn't make it for the event. Thank you Ross Barich for the warm welcome to us. My thanks to our AWS Community Heros Jeevan Dongre & Sathyajith Bhat, AWS Users Group Bengaluru and Rahul Jain for making this happen. Most importantly for helping me realize that Bengaluru, India to Las Vegas is not too far when you are with right community - hashtagawsugblr. I am sure Prashanth HN & Runcy Oommen on board as co-organizers are going to strengthen it further! Thanks to @InforIndia & @Vynessa Alexander for all their support. Couldn't let the wonderful experience at hashtagawsreinvent2018 along with Ana Luca Diegues Zamira Jaupaj & Jocylyn Sy fade away from our memory!, hence captured the rich experience at re:Invent 2018 into a series of blog posts on the AWS Users Group Bengaluru blog Journey through re:Invent 2018. Here is the official blog from Amazon - Meet the Women Building AWS Technical Communities Around the World.

For the lone wandered in the deserted city (rather the Desert City) exploring the Strip all alone on Saturday, Ana Luca Diegues & Zamira Jaupaj joined on the Sunday morning – 24th Nov 2018 and we all set out on a leisurely walk from New York New York & Casino hotel to The Venetian for AWS re:Invent 2018 registration.

For the first timer in Vegas & Nature lover, trip to Vegas is incomplete without visiting Grand Canyon & SkyWalk, hence covered it up as well. Climbing on to Guano Point and giving a broad smile hiding the trembling fear was really great experience with Jocylyn.
