AWS GameDay St. Louis 2019

October 10, 2019

AWS GameDay is a learning exercise designed to better familiarize players with the AWS environment and challenge them to come up with ways to solve problems based on the AWS resources they have available to them.

The path that GameDay participants take is open ended and therefore offers an opportunity to learn about AWS best practices, new AWS services, and AWS architecture patterns in a risk-free environment.

GameDay Essentials

Join us for an interactive, six-part series to get hands-on cloud computing experience in the fun, fictitious startup world of Unicorn.Rentals!

The Scenario

Congratulations on your new position at Unicorn.Rentals! After just a few short years as a company, Unicorn.Rentals continues to dominate in the Legendary Animal Rental Market (LARM). Time and again we continue to fulfill the needs of parents who have caved to their children’s demands of temporary use of a unicorn. As part of our continued market dominance, we are continuously expanding, and investing in training programs for our growing team of developers.

To hit the ground running, make sure to have a web browser, the AWS Command Line Tools (AWS CLI), and an SSH client pre-installed on your machine. An AWS account is not required, but you’ll have a lot more fun if you have one.
