You may not believe it - LOL - because I didn't receive my certification number yet, but I passed my first AWS certification today. I used the AWS free 7 hour training, watched the acloud.guru AWS SCA-A training (until I had to return it for refund), read the whitepapers, watched the first 10% of the LxAc AWS SCA-A prep and used the end-of-course Linux Academy quiz.
One down, the AWS CSA-A and Linux Essentials examinations next week. Taking full advance of my "free week"! Yippee!
