Amazon Web Services Conference Aimed at Partners, Developers

Amazon Web Services will hold its first conference aimed at bringing partners, customers and the AWS team together. Amazon will hold "AWS re: Invent 2012" on Nov. 27 to 29 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. Targeted at developers, enterprise IT and startups, the conference will consist of over 100 sessions, though the company has not announced specific content.

According to the preliminary conference Web site, AWS is looking to bring together its product and development teams and its systems integration and ISV partners with customers, venture capitalists and press. The announcement comes on the heels of the company's move to expand its partner ecosystem.

Among the topics AWS plans to cover are big data, high-performance computing, Web apps, development of mobile apps games and enterprise IT applications, the company said.

"AWS re: Invent is an opportunity for our current and future customers to learn proven strategies for taking advantage of the AWS cloud and take home new ideas that will help them invent within their own businesses and deliver more value to their customers," said AWS worldwide marketing head Ariel Kelman in a statement.

The company is recruiting potential speakers to give presentations. The deadline to propose a presentation is May 31.
