Acing My AWS Technical Essentials

posted in: Uncategorized | 5

You know that I have been raised a techie! I am a native Ohioan and my home state is one of the top birthplaces for astronauts. Don’t that? Late Ohio US Senator John Glenn, first American to orbit earth, and Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon (I talk about the 50th anniversary of the Moonwalk).


As a high school student, I took BASIC and PASCAL programming then I learned SAS programming and SQL. I have always loved computers so cloud computing is the next step. I am currently going through the Ohio Means Jobs workforce development program to get cloud computing training.

This past Tuesday I took the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Technical Essentials course. This is one of the foundational courses to if you want to pass the AWS Cloud Practitioner exam. I was glad to have taken it because it filled in so many gaps from my self-study. I learned a whole lot from the instructor and using the actual AWS labs.

What I will also say is that I am thankful to do self-study because I didn’t walk in there with zero knowledge. I took the Linux Academy AWS Concepts and Become an AWS Cloud Practitioner Learning path. Furthermore, I have registered for the AWS free tier to play around with the data.

I cannot wait until I receive my certificate and go into my second AWS course for Business Essentials. As always, I will keep you posted.
