Put your AWS skills to the test in a real-world, gamified, risk-free environment! Acceptance into the AWS Game Day is on a first come, first serve basis.

AWS Security GameDay

Registration is now closed 

Tuesday, April 13 – 12pm-3 pm CT

AWS GameDay is an interactive team-based learning exercise designed to give WiCyS 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 WiCyS members and experience levels are welcome to participate! 

WiCyS 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 GameDay 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 300 applicants. 

Upon acceptance you’ll be invited to the Introduction to AWS Security GameDay kickoff webinar on April 6

Registration deadline: March 31 (or until registration is full) Noon CT
