Join me as I sit down with AWS Don Barber on why he built AWS DeepRacer Virtual LIVE Event Racing.

Back in March 2020 when everyone was affected by the lockdown I started working on AWS UndergroundDeepRacer events. Hosting physical races in my basement for the DeepRacer Community and streaming them LIVE.

While I was doing that, Don Barber (AWS Sr. SA) build a Virtual Live Event Racing platform to host “Summit” type events.
