✨ Hello beautiful humans! ✨

Swapping out the cactuses (cacti? cactuses?) and palm trees of Phoenix for the neon lights of Las Vegas, it's time for this desert lover to bundle up! You see, in my book, unless the thermometer hits a sweltering 100°F+ (38°C for everyone around the globe), it's sweater weather for us sun-chasers.

Though Vegas promises an even brisker chill come late November, you won’t miss me at AWS re: Invent 2023: just scan for the shock of purple hair and, with a bit of luck, a standout crab jacket 🤞.

It’s true, I'm not one for the cold. But fear not, the events lineup is sizzling! Whether you're joining us in person for our live tech talks and demos, or snuggling up at home for our livestream, follow us to stay up to date on the details! Stay warm and stay tuned!
