A Vietnamese team at RenovaCloud has joined AWS GameDay: F1 League 2023 in Singapore to compete with regional teams as part of its efforts to improve its digital skills.

VIR's Bich Thuy said, "Meeting Minh Le, solution architect team leader at RenovaCloud, at the event as part of the AWS ASEAN Summit 2023 in Singapore on May 4, I felt how huge the passion for digital and cloud skills is in the eyes, faces, and hands of the players here."

Minh Le told VIR, “We have joined this competition for years, and we came first in the three previous events. This is a valuable opportunity for us to strengthen our teamwork skills while exchanging knowledge and experience.”

He added that this year saw a new platform for players that is different from the previous ones. His team did not gain as high a ranking as expected in the 2023 competition, as they secured the seventh position among the ten teams.

“Through the game, we found that we still lack some digital skills and knowledge, so we should learn more to improve,” he admitted.

In an effort to build these skills, Minh Le and his team had joined many playgrounds globally, including those in North America and others. The RenovaCloud team expects a better result in future competitions.

AWS GameDay is organised annually. It is a collaborative learning exercise that tests skills in implementing AWS solutions to solve real-world problems in a gamified, risk-free environment. It is a completely hands-on opportunity for technical professionals to explore AWS services, architecture patterns, best practices, and group cooperation.

This year, the AWS GameDay updated its solutions for data analytics and AI, which is a current tech trend in the market. The event attracted 10 teams from various countries across the region.

The inaugural event took place in November 2022. It is a new, interactive, and game-based learning experience for individuals and organisations to learn about building real-world cloud solutions for their specific industries.
