Udemy is what I did. I now do cloud consulting

like

Yeah. The solutions architect one is at least

I watched Cloud Guru for a little bit. Then they increased their prices and I realized I don’t learn best from videos so I left. But could be a good start.

There are several great, free courses through LinkedIn Learning (which the firm pays for). Do one or 2 of those, and get a baseline understanding of the names of the services Amazon offers, what each one does, and how they connect. If you’re willing to spend some money, A Cloud Guru is unmatched

Pretty sure K has a Cloud Academy subscription.

What do you plan on doing with the cert? I took CP then got lazy before SA

I keep seeing both types of comments in FB about Amazon culture. Probably highly dependent on group people work in. Very curious to know about it more SA1 and K1

Salesforce Trailhead has an aws trail

Downloaded it 🙏

A cloud guru is what we used for our very drive. Was able to get enterprise with several seats before the prices went up. Has lots of reports to track progress and mastery for the whole team. Created study groups and a dedicated teams channel for people to ask questions. Also got some additional practice tests.

like

The CCP was like 10 hours of lessons. And the study plan/accelerator is budgeted for 4 weeks, but if folks hit the bench 1-2 weeks is easily doable

For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.

Don’t hate on me plz. I’m planning to get an online or hybrid MBA with focus on information systems. I studied and worked in Control Systems Engineering and got into consulting at 27, manager at big4 now(33). My focus is to simply get better at what I do as I rise up the ladder. Would really appreciate any schools one can recommend. I didn’t grow up or studied in USA so really not sure which colleges might be better (?) than others.
