A guest post authored by Jennine Townsend, expert sysadmin and AWS aficionado

There were so many sessions at re:Invent! Now that it’s over, I want
to watch some sessions on video, but which ones?

Of course I’ll pick out those that are specific to my interests, but I
also want to know the sessions that had good buzz, so I made a list
that’s kind of mashed together from sessions that I heard good things
about on Twitter, with those that had lots of repeats and overflow
sessions, figuring those must have been popular.

But I confess I left out some whole categories! There aren’t sessions
for Alexa or DeepRacer (not that I’m not interested, they’re just not
part of my re:Invent followup), and I don’t administer any Windows
systems so I leave out most of those sessions.

Some sessions have YouTube links, some don’t (yet) have and may never
have YouTube videos, since lots of (types of) sessions aren’t
recorded. (But even there, if I search the topic and speakers, I bet
I can often find an earlier talk.)

There’s not much of a ranking: keynotes at the top, sessions I heard
good things about in the middle, then sessions that had lots of
repeats. It’s only mildly specific to my interests, so I thought
other people might find it helpful. It’s also not really finished,
but I wanted to get started watching sessions this weekend!
