ReInvent 2015 AWS offerings
This year the AWS conference had 19k attendees and over 38k people seeing its keynote session through livestream.
Zeph has been really excited by QuickSight which is a quick way to see analytics almost like what we have in Data dashboard with jupyter hub.
I am more excited to see the elastic search and feel that it could help us use it in vialogues, nlt, mschool. Also machine learning and lambda is very good
