IT professionals with skills in Amazon Web Services will once again swarm Las Vegas come October.

Amazon will hold its next annual cloud services conference, re:Invent, from October 6 to October 9.

As has been the case since the event's debut in 2012, the venue will be the Venetian, a spacious hotel and conference facility.

Registration will open at some point in May. To be notified of the specific date, interested parties can sign up now on the conference Website.

The event has grown along with AWS usage, attracting over 13,000 attendees last year, up from 9,000 attendees in 2013. Amazon hasn't said how many people it expects at this year's conference.

AWS head Andy Jassy led the opening keynote last year and in 2013, extolling the virtues of moving enterprise operations to the cloud and taunting competitors such as IBM and Microsoft for their "hybrid cloud" solutions.

The company has also used the event to unveil new services, which attendees could then investigate in greater depth at technical sessions.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
