Now, on to the breakout sessions.
12:45PM - 1:45PM: I am torn between the talk on OpsWorks and Beanstalk and "Big Data & HPC: Big Data and High Performance Computing Solutions in the AWS Cloud." I have decided to attend the talk by Ben Butler about HPC because I have hands-on experience with OpsWorks and Beanstalk.
Lastly, the one on the AWS Marketplace. I think I will attend this one because it is a long term goal of Flux7 to make it easier for our customers to deploy Flux7's best practices architectures in a self-service model using the Marketplace. I feel like I want to learn more about this.
3:15PM - 4:15PM: Again, two contenders. Applying the best practices and processes for rapid cloud delivery. And, "Partnering with AWS." I am still undecided. I will most likely attend the Cloudnexa talk about best practices for Cloud Delivery because its a topic dear to my heart. At Flux7, we are very focused on development workflow and
4:30PM - 5:30PM: In this case, I think we have a winner. I definitely want to attend "Optimizing Total Cost of Ownership for the AWS Cloud." I want to attend it because Flux7 champions cost optimization in AWS, and while we have a dozen
techniques up our sleeves, I want to learn what techniques AWS is recommending or others are using. Very interested in networking with the attendees of this session!
5:30PM - 7PM: I will be at the Networking Reception. Again, I am booked to meet a few friends, and will engage in networking and making new friends.
7PM -10PM: I am deliberating between the AWS Summit Social and the AWS Activate Startup social event. At the moment, I am inclined to attend the AWS Summit Social because I expect to find more thought-provoking conversations there. However, this is a close tie, and I may flip.
