AWS Game Day hosted by Blacks in Cybersecurity
AWS GameDay is an interactive team-based learning exercise designed to give BICHQ members a chance to put their AWS skills to the test.
AWS GameDay is an interactive team-based learning exercise designed to give BICHQ members a chance to put their AWS skills to the test in a real-world, gamified, risk-free environment. Most importantly, it is an extremely fun way to learn collaboratively. We step outside the boundaries of typical workshops through open-endedness and ambiguity. All BICHQ members and experience levels are welcome to participate!
BICHQ member players are broken up into teams of three, and given a starting architecture that they will then need to evolve throughout the day in response to internal and external events. There is no one right answer; the path that Game Day participants take is up to them, based on the AWS resources at their disposal in pre-packaged AWS accounts. This is a completely hands-on opportunity to learn about AWS best practices, new AWS services, and AWS architecture patterns.
Acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is limited to the first 100 applicants.
