Join BJSS Platform Engineers as we take on the AWS Sustainability GameDay!

    Hosted by AWS, we'll be having some fun taking part in a Sustainability GameDay. An AWS GameDay is a collaborative learning exercise that tests skills in implementing AWS solutions to solve real-world problems in a gamified, risk-free environment. This is a completely hands-on opportunity for technical professionals to explore AWS services, architecture patterns, best practices, group cooperation and enables AWS users to understand how to be mindful of energy efficiency on the AWS infrastructure. 

    Players will compete in teams which consist of 3 players. Teams will be battling it out to win an Apple watch which will be awarded to each member of the winning team at the end of the game. Attendance is remote and requires AWS experience - all you need is access to a computer!

    The GameDay will be followed by an optional social session.


    Gameday Scenario

    Our fictional business Unicorn.Rentals has been under pressure after being exposed of unethical and unsustainable practices the past year. Whilst on her Spirit Animal Safari Yoga Leadership Retreat, the CEO was inspired to post a promise to reduce carbon emissions on social media. Our customers and shareholders are holding us to this promise and now HQ is scrambling to find ways to reduce our impact over the overnight viral post. We need your help to reduce our IT footprint through implementing sustainable best practices in our AWS infrastructure!
