My AWS ReInvent first-week schedule and why it matters.

2020 is forcing everyone to change and this year the ReInvent will be free and
fully virtual, which means that more people will be able to attend to the high-quality talks
without the need to travel to Las Vegas.
Also, this year the ReInforce will not happen which means that we can expect some compensation from AWS. But you can sign up for ReInforce 2021 updates here(
I am sharing here some of the sections and why Ill be attending to it, by doing that I`ll not suffer any kind of fear of missing out(FOMO).
The ReInvent website may be lacking some usability. If you are looking for a better scheduling place, I would recommend the agenda created by PegBoard ( where you can export and better
manipulate this kind of data.

Also, don`t forget to check the Keynotes, that is always good.

Understanding multi-account management

Creating workflow and harvesting the power of AWS Organizations to create a multi-account management framework can assist you to leverage the security of multiple accounts at the same time. Having a multi-account management framework allows
you to deploy a security feature such as Security Hub and unify the collection of Cloudtrail. Also, using the permission boundaries you can enforce your IAM permissions. I don`t think that this session will go to this level of detail but it is worth to attend to have the basis.
