Completed AWS - Developer Associate 2018 - my feedback

Hello,

I passed the Certified Developer Associate 2018 exam today and there are some topics that you really should read up on as its not covered in the course. I will email Fernando separately.

Also a big thank you to Fernando for the course.

My feedback:

- Cloudwatch is now a huge topic

- Cloudtrail for API log troubleshooting

- VPC flow logs > though not strictly a topic, it was a possible answer for some question so having some knowledge here helps

- VPC security groups

- SAM (Server less Architecture Model)

- Cloudformation

- Systems Manager Parameter Store (only got one question here)

- Route53

For the practice exams/questions:

- I didnt receive any questions on system/account limits

- Troubleshooting is an important topic so be preapred for this

It looks like the new 2018 versions of the exam have a combination of topics from all 3 associate exams. I really didn't expect so many CloudWatch questions in this exam as it's more of a SysAdmin topic but not so.

Also the SAM is now huge so please read up on this too.

Hello Manoj! 

First off - Congrats on passing! Secondly, thanks for all the great feedback. We always want to keep updating the course with feedback we hear from students taking the exam so this is appreciated. From what it sounds like there might be a few topics we can add upon given your feedback so I'll write those down and make sure I can supplement the course with that material soon!
