Session Guide to Re:Invent 2022

General - Foundational (100)
AWS Re:Invent 2022 is almost upon us! In the article below you will find my long-list of 50+ sessions I would like to see, even though I know I will never be able to attend them all in person. Luckily, most sessions will be available online after a few weeks, so this page will serve as my YouTube watch list too.
There are a few sessions I wouldn't want to miss for the world. I will highlight these first. Unfortunately some of these sessions overlap and I will have to choose. But that's life.
The other sessions will be grouped by date and ordered by time.
I hope this list will be valuable to you too. It might serve as inspiration, or maybe it contains a few sessions you missed when scanning this year's (giant) session catalogue.
Shoutout to Sheen Brisals, whose post AWS re:Invent 2022 — My Selection Of Sessions inspired me to publish mine too. As we're both AWS Serverless Heroes it shouldn't be a surprise to see a lot of overlap between our lists. However, there are definitely some areas where we do not match interests, so make sure to check out Sheen's list too.
