Re:Invent 2015 through the eyes of AWS customers

This year's re:Invent conference was Amazon Web Services' most popular, which led to some conference congestion. AWS users took to Twitter to share sights and thoughts from Las Vegas.

Piling into the Sands Expo and Convention Center, some 19,000 cloud professionals attended AWS re:Invent 2015 eager to learn about the cloud provider's technologies and new services. While Andy Jassy's opening keynote kicked off the show, with several new services introduced, a variety of hands-on labs, boot camps, sessions and workshops -- not to mention vendor swag on the expo floor -- also got attendees excited enough to tweet.

AWS customers took to Twitter to share their thoughts and photos from the conference, some of them while traversing long lines from one scheduled event to another. Many attendees reacted to topics from informational sessions, such as the physical security of AWS data centers, while others shared thoughts and images from the vendor showcase. The most popular points of discussion emerged from AWS keynote addresses, but the event provided plenty of topics beyond product announcements.

Here are a few thoughts and images from the conference posted with the hashtag "#reInvent."
