Passed AWS Certified Developer (2018)

Passed the 2018 version of the Amazon Certified Developer Associate exam yesterday.  I used the courses on acloud.guru and LinuxAcademy to prepare, and the LinuxAcademy one is definitely better. I also used the official practice exam and the WhizLabs practice exams. The WhizLabs ones are helpful, but the official one isn't worth $20 IMO.

The test itself wasn't terribly difficult, but the experience left something to be desired. I took it at a remotely-administered kiosk, and when it came time for the test,  the guy there spent ~15 minutes on the phone with the test administrator so they could remotely reboot the kiosk (the previous test-taker had to leave due to technical issues). The kiosk crashed 3 times while I was taking the test, but it managed to stay up long enough for me to finish.

    Congratulations!

    I’d love to endorse/recommend you on LinkedIn if you want. All you have to do is add me as a connection and add Linux Academy as your school. Once you do that, post a picture of your cert about passing in your feed and reference me within the original post. Once I see this, I’ll be able to recommend you for your hard work on your LinkedIn profile.

    Thanks,

    Anthony
