The Confluent team is thrilled to meet you in person at AWS re:Invent 2021 happening on November 29 through December 3. As a Diamond sponsor, we are showing up in full force to show you data in motion in action and how Confluent and AWS are partnering to accelerate your journey to the cloud. Let’s break it down and explain why Confluent’s re:Invent booth and events are a “must attend” for your 2021 re:Invent schedule.
Stop by our booth (#220) or one of our two sessions where we will demo how Confluent’s cloud-native hybrid and multicloud platform completes Kafka. See firsthand how we can help you migrate and connect your data to AWS, no matter where your data lives, to unlock real-time analytics and applications. From demoing data warehouse migrations to Amazon Redshift, to real-time edge/IoT stream processing, to running machine learning classifiers in real time, we’ll show you how to do it with Confluent and AWS, all live.
We all know the first step is always the hardest. That’s why we are going to be there when you take it. We’ll be giving away trial AWS and Confluent credits so you can try Confluent for free. And be sure to join one of our getting started coding sessions, happening live in our booth theater around the clock. Our subject matter experts will walk you through a 101 coding session where you will see how easy it is to connect a data producer to a data consumer using Confluent Cloud. All you need to bring are your questions and your laptop.
We invite you to drop in for a chitchat with one of our Confluent and Apache experts on the second floor of our booth, or we can schedule some time with you beforehand. Make sure you get the 1:1 time you need to walk away from re:Invent with a full understanding of Kafka and Confluent on AWS.
Alongside all the reasons highlighted above, we are also hosting and co-hosting some of the top social events at re:Invent. The fun starts with an invite-only party at Sushi Samba with AWS Worldwide Lead, Chris Grusz, and Ted Lasso star, Brendan Hunt (Coach Beard), on December 1. We’re also co-hosting a party on Monday and a bar crawl on Tuesday with our partners over at MongoDB. If your nights are already scheduled and you can’t make our parties, please join us at our booth where we will refill your cup after a long night and/or day with coffee in the a.m. and beverages in the p.m. Plus, we will have Mario Kart on hand to round out our booth happy hour with a little fun.
So there you have it: 4 reasons Confluent is a “must visit” at re:Invent 2021. To make sure you don’t miss out, please visit and bookmark our Confluent’s re:Invent page and reach out to us if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org!
