Recently I’ve been learning more about AWS. I bought a subscription to A Cloud Guru and I’ve been working through the material. I’ve been learning a lot.
However, I’ve decided against taking the AWS certifications. Here’s why:
- AWS is changing so quickly that the certifications become out of date quickly. I know this because A Cloud Guru frequently mentions parts of AWS that have changed for which the certification hasn’t caught up. I’m not willing to learn out of date information, just to pass a course.
- I don’t need to prove my knowledge. I don’t want to work as a Devops engineer doing AWS stuff full time. I just want to learn about AWS so that I can build products. Therefore, I’m happy to use A Cloud Guru as a resource for learning without feeling the need to gain the certs.
