Quick feedback from my third day at Re:invent 2021. I'll talk about the AWS builders projects from the Expo and the session about Best practices for advanced serverless developers.




No sessions for me this morning, I went to the Expo Hall instead, to check all the projects, a lot of startups that exchange your information with some goodies. I won't talk much about those startups, but more about the AWS Side projects. Those projects are here to show what you can build with AWS Services.

Read For Meโ€‹

This is my favourite project, it's an app that read for you, it can translate too. The SA that built this project could not see properly, it's very useful for him! Their demo was fully functional, they translated to french some a paragraph I gave them. The French was perfect, I was impressed.
