Learning the AWS Cloud (Again)

That read exactly as it states Learning the AWS Cloud (Again). Even though I hold both AWS Cloud Practitioner and Solutions Architect – Associate certifications, I don’t feel confident in my skillset. So, I’m starting at the beginning and learning from scratch. Knowing what I know now, I know how to study for a foundational understanding of the AWS Cloud, services, and terminology.

Along the way, I plan on getting my hands dirty and do some projects to have a better idea of the various AWS tools and their business applications.

I won’t be following a linear approach; I’ll be switching up my study routine to stay motivated and to remember why I decided to get into the cloud. Much of this learning won’t just be centered around AWS. I'll also focus on the equally important skills of a business professional and my mental focus and emotional intelligence.

What lead to this…I began to do deep dives and finding out:

  1. I need to know more than just AWS.
  2. 🤬 I don’t know 💩 about what I initially need to know.

So, thanks to content creators for helping me realize this and for me to bridge the gap from cloud certification to cloud career.

I can relate to this. I started with learning AWS AI services back in early 2022. There were around 10 apps. Now this number is more than 20.
