Junior AWS Cloud Engineer – Entry Level
July 16th, 2019
In this entry level learning path, you’ll prepare for your first role as an AWS cloud engineer. You’ll begin with by learning Linux, the operating system that powers much of the cloud. Next, you’ll be introduced to core concepts of cloud computing and gain a better understanding of the purpose of platforms like AWS, before diving into Python, a programming language that will help you work with the different services you’ll interact with as a cloud engineer. Finally, you’ll learn AWS in depth, preparing for two associate level certifications that will help you earn your first job working in the cloud. As an entry level AWS cloud engineer, you’ll help implement basic features, maintain existing infrastructure, and assisting in managing your organization’s cloud infrastructure. Your job responsibilities may include writing code to join various parts of your organization’s systems, implementing solutions that have been designed by senior engineers, and working with various departments within the company, both technical and non technical, to maintain a reliable, scalable system. This is an entry level learning path, so all you need is a basic understanding of how to use a personal computer, and an interest in developing new skills. Prior experience in a technical role is helpful but not required.
