What is AWS APN Ambassador Global Summit?

There are about 150 APN Ambassadors, divided over three regions: the Americas, EMEA and APAC. For each of these regions, the top contributors and thought leaders from the AWS Partner Network community were invited to join the AWS APN Ambassador Global Summit in Seattle, Washington. And Ashish was one of the 50 Ambassadors globally!

This Summit was the first of its kind. Previously, AWS APN Ambassadors from separate countries had no common meeting point to discuss the ongoing technology trends.

The Summit involved two days of workshops, presentations and interactions with the principal architects, networking with other ambassadors and sightseeing around Seattle, Washington. Naturally, the Summit had a mix of some brilliant people well-learned in multiple trends emerging in the technology sector, particularly, Software Enterprises, Serverless Computing, Enterprise-Grade Migrations, MSP(Managed Services Providers) and Big Data.
