AWS Cloud Practitioner - Insights Mind Map

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Practitioner exam is a basic exam that covers the core concepts of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform. The exam is designed for individuals who are new to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform and want to gain a basic understanding of its concepts and features. The exam is also designed for individuals who are already familiar with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform and want to refresh their knowledge of its concepts and features.
It is not limited to technicians only, as it doesn't involve a lot of coding skills. Anyone can apply to this exam including-but not limited to- marketing expertise and accountants as an example.

After completing the course of AWS Cloud Practitioner exam, the candidate might feel overwhelmed due to the large amount of services and their definitions.
Here is a brief of the most important:

  • Understanding the basics of cloud computing.
  • Understanding how to best utilize the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.
  • Learning how to design and implement a cloud-based solution.
  • Leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) best practices.

You might feel overwhelmed at the first look of the course titles. They are up to 19 titles, and if you are new to cloud computing, big titles can be scary such as 'Managing Infrastructure at a scale', or 'AWS Global Infrastructure'.
The most important thing is to grasp the baseline knowledge of each section and to make sure you know the following:

  1. Definition of the service
  2. When, Why, and how to use it
  3. The services similar to it or the tools that can be helpful
  4. Check the Shared Responsibility model.

Pay Attention for the Shared Responsibility Model as this is a major part of the exam, and as a Cloud Practitioner it is crucial to know what your responsibility is and what the AWS cloud provider responsibility is.

In the following link, you will find a Mind Map that will guide you through the titles that are most important to cover and make sure you know them before you apply the exam.
Please note that these are the most important, but not limited to, all the needed titles in the exam.

When I finished the course studying, I created this mind map and made sure that I am familiar with each title of it.
Hope it helps!

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.

I'm talking about Git and version control of course.

One does not simply learn git
