The AWS re:Invent conference is coming to Las Vegas the week of December 2–6, and Coinbase is representing! Our incredible Product and Engineering team members will be speaking about site reliability, scaling our blockchain infrastructure, and teaching about cryptocurrencies. Come and join us!

AWS re:Invent is the annual Amazon Web Services (AWS) learning conference in Las Vegas that attracts developers, system administrators, architects, and technical decision makers from all over the cloud computing world. Last year, they had an estimated attendance of 50,000 and succeeded in taking over most of the famous Las Vegas Strip. This year, re:Invent is anticipated to set new records, and the Coinbase team is proud to be contributing to the learning aspect of the conference.

Coinbase has a close-knit relationship with Amazon on a few levels. First, AWS powers almost all of Coinbase’s infrastructure, from storage, databases, analytics, you name it. Second, we regularly speak at the AWS Loft in San Francisco, and publish about technology that we use and open source that runs on AWS. Third, we are on a mission to build an open financial system for the world and with that, bring the utility of blockchain and digital currencies to the masses.
