What did you like or dislike about your re:Invent experience this year?
I really enjoyed the bootcamps and breakout sessions.  I found moving through so many people to be a challenge.  And the lines for the shuttles were incredibly long. In most cases, I found walking to be more effective.  I strongly recommend that attendees wear very comfortable walking shoes and bring a bike, if possible.
