My first challenge of 2021 is about learning AWS Associate Developer certificate. It’s more interesting than I thought. You will not only learn about the AWS products but also about some knowledge help you have a bigger view about application deployment and architecture. For example:
And here is the list of resources I use for learning, hope it’s useful for you too. :)
I. Materials #
Registration for exam: #
II. How to learn #
1. Don’t waste your time of searching for material #
I follow the structure of the Udemy AWS course above and reading AWS Docs
From my experience, there is no best material. We can choose 1 course or book, let consider it as the base material, then follow it from the start to finish.
Along the way, we reference to other materials when the concepts in a base material are not clear enough, or you don’t understand it.
2. “Get your feet wet” #
Not just reading or listening, you should take notes, re-read the notes… It helps you recall the knowledge before taking the exam.
3. Looking further #
When you learn Amazon, you should spend 5% of learning time (just a few) to reference to Microsoft/Google Cloud to see the equivalent services.
