Hi any experience with AWS is valuable as gold. Learn anything and your price will increase drastically.

Not everyone understands how AWS works. It will always give you an extra edge over other candidates.

If you focus your energy on a single side project by trying to best simulate a production workload then yes and strongly recommended that you do so.
