AWS Learning Path – how to do this right?

I started to learn AWS last summer as a 2nd cloud after my Microsoftee years. So many similarities, but different vocabulary. There are surprisingly great services for Windows shops at AWS. I am less machine learning and DevOps and more on Networking and Database kind of person. What is your profile? What’s the best learning path for you? How you can bring the most value to the organization supports your development plan?

To address those questions I found a great article on the A Cloud Guru website. Which AWS Certification Should I Get? | A Cloud Guru

It helped me to understand the different paths and personalities following those paths.

A hardcore developer probably less enjoys drawing a nice fancy diagram (or writing documentation), and a hardcore architect less enjoys debugging Python or advanced Terraform scripts.

I think, as a superhero (I am lucky to have such friends), it is good to have a sense of understanding of each area. It helps you to understand resource planning in AWS projects/engagements.

Why multi-cloud is the way to go? VMware and Oracle perspective.

While cloud migration is still a popular topic during customer discussions, I have noticed that more and more customers are considering an exit plan from one cloud (vendor lock-in) to another cloud meaning there is an increase in multi-cloud migration demand. VMware, Oracle, and SAP are the major workloads in on-premises data centers today. Based on my research both VMware and Oracle are very vocal about the importance of having a multi-cloud strategy.
