@eyalestrin、thank you for posting this.

I think the way amazon is pushing towards information security, AWS Certified Security - Specialty won't be an easy task. After all its security and flexibility which differentiates cloud from on premises

Thanks for posting @eyalestrin! I know The Ops Community's own @patrick_londa was in attendance this week.

Did anyone else attend AWS re:Inforce in Boston this week? Share your experiences with us in the comments. I'm sure many other community members are curious!

Hope you had a great time at the conference, @eyalestrin! I personally most enjoyed sessions where teams were sharing something they built. I attended one on how Bristol Myers Squibb built an internal self-service catalog and one with Athenahealth where they discussed their journey implementing their Firewall. Hoping to see the recording available for all sessions soon!
