Discussion on: Is the AWS Solutions Architect Certification worth it? A review

This is a great perspective. I just started studying software development- about 6 months. I've made a few apps. I'm a high school teacher so I wrote a simple program to automate parent student communication. It worked okay- it just wasn't practical. I could only use it from my personal computer at home, and I couldn't share it to my coworkers. So eventually AWS starting looking like the solution to my problems. Also, I don't have much real knowledge of the tech industry. Now that I've started preparation for the exam, I've had so many 'a-ha' moments. I'm starting to see the big picture and how companies and organizations get things done. Don't get me wrong, once I earn my first certificate it's going on my CV and profile, but the skills and knowledge obtained while studying for it will definitely get put to good use.

That's awesome to hear! Best of luck on the journey! So long as you stick with it and keep the passion you'll make a ton of progress. AWS is an amazing service and I'm sure it will more than meet your development needs.
I was using AWS for quite a bit before taking the cert and even then it helped me tie together a lot of concepts. Studying for it is a great entry/guide to the world of provisioning cloud infrastructure.
