After DJ Shiftee welcomed the audience with some early-morning beats, AWS CTO Werner Vogels was welcomed to the stage. Vogels decided to structure his keynote around reflecting on the vision he stretched during his keynote at re:Invent five years ago, in 2012, which at that time, did not contain any new announcement or features. Therefore, Vogels started by saying: "if you're only here for new announcements, than please leave now, because there won't be any....naah, actually there might be one or two". Since our minds were already blown by all the new announcement that were made by Andy Jassy the day before, we were happy to sit back, relax and enjoy Vogel's vision and enthusiasm! In this blog we wil provide you with a brief summary.
