Let's get ready to rumble! It's that time of year when we head to Las Vegas with 50,000 of our closest friends for the biggest AWS event of the year: re:Invent.

Five days long, with more than 2,500 sessions, taking place in 6 huge venues spread over 2.5 miles, re:Invent is a heavyweight of a conference. If you don't plan ahead, re:Invent will take you down in a TKO.

In this episode of Mobycast, Jon and Chris are in your corner, breaking down this year's event with the tips, tricks and secrets you need to make the most of re:Invent.
