Good morning everyone, I’m writing to you this morning from Las Vegas in the AWS re:Invent Certification Lounge and I’m looking forward to getting the most out of this conference. The Certification Lounge is a great place with all kinds of arcade games at ones disposal! My particular weakness, a Ms. Pac Man / Galaga combo is in the lounge so I hope I can resist the temptation and actually attend the sessions I’ve signed up for. I think Donkey Kong is in here somewhere as well…..
Anyway, Sunday was more or less a travel/explore day so nothing much happened. I was pretty excited in that I was flying on Frontier Airlines for the first time and had read the following regarding their service and flying experience.
- Frontier is
- “totally miserable”
- Flying on Frontier
- “is like flying on the plane with Indiana Jones and all the farm animals”
- the takeoff was “scary”
- pilots seemingly seek out turbulence as opposed to avoiding it
- the descent felt like a “kamikaze” approach
I don’t necessarily like turbulence, but was looking forward to a scary takeoff and kamikaze approach, but none of this happened. In fact, the landing may have been the smoothest I had ever experienced….all-in-all, thanks to Frontier for an uneventful experience. If you wanted refreshments you had to pay for them but if you’re tough, you really can make it 4 hours with pretzels and soda. Just buy what you want before you board in one of the many Hudson News storefronts in your local airport.
I took these with my cell phone so neither picture gives their subject the proper due…..
Thus far, I’ve gotten to pieces of SWAG….a jacket and t-shirt. I’ve already head somebody say the SWAG this year “isn’t as good as last year”. Seems like that’s always the case as conferences get more popular and expensive to put on.
I did walk around with my camera a little bit last night to take some pictures. Here’s one of the Luxor though I need to tweak it a little bit more.
Well, I gotta run to my first session. I’ll post my notes and hope you have a great day!
