Another late post (Summer has been extremely busy), but I passed the exam on 6/29. I am very proud of this achievement! I am primarily teaching myself AWS by building out infrastructure on my own account, reading the certification guides \ Whitepapers cover-to-cover, and I have been using acloud.guru courses to bolster my knowledge as well.
On to the SysOps Administrator next. This was my initial goal when starting this blog and now the goal is closer than ever. Stayed tuned for more achievements in AWS!
