And now, sad #reinvent facts to make your trip better.
The venues are huge. "Across the street" could be a 45 minute walk if you don't get lost. And you will get lost at #reinvent.
You will not see everything. Bias for conversations over sessions. The #reinvent videos are all online in a few days, the conversations are irreplaceable.
Enjoy the solace of your room and recharge if you need it. Y'know, unless @densify busts into people's rooms to deliver swag again like they did at the last #reinvent.
Say hi to strangers. Invite lonely people to chat. We were all new to #reinvent once; some still are.
Try to attend rePlay, Midnight Madness, and at least one #reinvent keynote. Then never do it again.
Go easy on the booze / gambling. You never know who's at the next table over, and this city dries you out as it is. #reinvent
Remember that there's a #reinvent code of conduct. You shouldn't need to know the specifics; just be a decent human being. Since that is of course too goddamned much to ask of some of you monsters, aws.amazon.com/codesofconduct/ has details.
If you wouldn't spend $5 for the stupid #reinvent swag item, why are you spending 45 minutes of your life in line for it? Make better choices!
The #reinvent physical security team has absolutely no sense of humor. I left my "AMI Has Three Syllables" protest sign at home this #reinvent.
If you see me, feel free to introduce yourself. I'm always game for a #reinvent selfie / mocking your favorite AWS service. See out out there...
