About AWS GameDay

About AWS GameDay

AWS GameDay is an interactive, team-based learning experience designed to put your AWS skills to the test, by solving real-world problems in a gamified, risk-free environment.

Most importantly, it is an extremely fun way to learn more about the potential of AWS without the step-by-step instructions provided in workshops or classroom-style sessions. If you are looking for an open-ended way to hone your skills, then AWS GameDay is the perfect challenge for you.

Interested? We have a special scenario for you!

Solve for Unicorns

Unicorn.Rentals is the world’s leading provider of equine-based mythical creatures, with a focus on responsible and ethical sourcing from their (super)natural habitat.

AWS GameDay will be your first day on this fictional job, so get ready for an induction like no other. And no, you can’t feed the unicorns.

AWS will provide all of the infrastructure and technology that you need in order to work through the different scenarios. You just need the following items:
