But that's not dampening the enthusiasm of AWS partners that build features and functionality around the cloud giant's offerings. At AWS' annual re:Invent conference, held in Las Vegas in early October, the expo hall was even more action-packed than it has been in previous years. Indeed, there was almost a carnival atmosphere this year, as AWS partners showed off their latest and greatest stuff.
