Analyst currently doing Function design work, no real developer experience. I’m gearing towards a Solution Architect certification in the hopes that it can open up an easier role shift in maybe a few months. Is it likely this will be an effective strategy? Are the AWS certs looked at as legit?

AWS certs are looked at as legit certs. However, it’s like with anything in tech. It depends on the type of roles you are trying to get. For technical roles companies will want to know about hands on experience and also tech you. If you’re looking to get your start doing more work in AWS then certs are a great way to show you have some passion for it. Also, lab some stuff up so you can talk about it in your interview.
