30 Days of AWS

gameoverwill profile image Wilfredo Pérez Updated on ・2 min read

Warning: This is my first post in English, It could have grammatical errors, please help me to improve.

Motivation.

One year ago I started to work using AWS and immediately I fall in love with this platform. In fact, one-year later since this first day I love to understand more and more things about and improve the stuff that we have there.

Back in October 2018, I was talking with my boss and I expressed my interest in getting a certified as AWS developer or Solution architect, I know that a lot of people are against that one certification doesn't prove your knowledge in any topic but in my case is one motivation to keep on studying and improving. But for different reasons I've delayed the day to start seriously to study because although I work almost every single day with AWS, it has dark corners that I don't know or I couldn't imagine that it exists.

So I decided that I've 3 months as a deadline to get ready and take the exam, so I decided to start this 30 days of AWS.

The challenge.

Right now I'm doing many things, as run 3 times per week at least 5km/run, Study English 2 times per week, I have 2 jobs and I'm daddy of 2. Yes I know I'm a pretty busy man but I like living on the edge.

Personal rules for this challenge:

1.) 30 Days will be the initial challenge because I gonna test my time and commitment.
2.) I will try to share my progress every day.
3.) The minimum time to study per day will be 1 hour/day.
4.) I could skip for 3 days because I'm pretty busy.

So If you want to follow me on this adventure please stay tuned. This will be a month with work hard but I'm sure that I will enjoy it.

When I studied for the AWS Big Data cert, I tried to do ~30 minutes per day. That meant that on some days I did 30 minutes, but mostly I did something ranging from 15 minutes to 2 hours. For me, however, it was just important to do a little bit each day so I felt like I was making progress and the concepts stayed fresh in my mind.

Good luck and don't beat yourself up if that hour each day isn't quite an hour, especially if you're working with AWS at work daily.

Thank for your wishes and recommendations and the most important is "don't beat yourself up" if I see something like that I will take one day off, it will be an adventure to enjoy not for pain. Thank you.
