Hello again, Las Vegas. My fourth and final trip to Sin City in 2017 was for Amazon Web Services's big customer and partner hoedown, re:Invent.
During the late November conference, I practiced two of the Seven Deadly Sins: 1. Gluttony at the hotel food court while staying up late writing articles, and 2. Envy for people who were not in Las Vegas.
But I shouldn't complain. Las Vegas has a certain insane charm as a conference location. Everything is accessible, although you have to run the gauntlet of slot machines to get where you're going. And there's plenty of weirdness to occupy the eye.
