I’m grateful to announce that I am now a Certified AWS SysOps Associate! Over the past few months I’ve been studying intensely for the exam several hours a day. The positive side of this is that I now hold a wealth of practical knowledge about how to use AWS across a broad number of AWS services. The drawback is that I’ve not had time to work on my personal AWS projects, but I intend to pick back up on that now. I’ve also already started studying for the DevOps Professional exam, which should nicely complement my hands-on usage of AWS, since the DevOps exam requires a much deeper knowledge of AWS on a practical level. Here I go!
