The foundational certification is an excellent first step, but you'll need to acquire additional skills and knowledge to truly thrive in the AWS and wider cloud computing landscape. Here are some paths you can take from there on.
Master the Tools: Get comfortable with tools frequently utilized in AWS settings, such as Terraform for infrastructure coding, Packer for generating identical machine images, Ansible for configuration control, and VS Code for code editing.
Acquire a Programming Language: Proficiency in a language like Python can significantly boost your ability to automate processes, handle data, and build AWS applications. AWS provides Python SDKs, enabling you to engage with AWS services programmatically.
Learn Shell Scripting: Basic shell scripting can be handy for automating regular tasks, file management, and system administration within an AWS context, particularly when dealing with EC2 instances.
Understand Containerization and Orchestration: Get to know the principles of containerization (starting with Docker is recommended) and orchestration tools such as Kubernetes. AWS provides services like ECS (Elastic Container Service) and EKS (Elastic Kubernetes Service), which are crucial for microservices deployment.
Study Design Patterns: Gaining knowledge of architectural patterns like microservices can be advantageous, as they are frequently used in modern, scalable applications. Get to know the idea of CI/CD pipelines and their role in the DevOps culture. AWS services like CodePipeline, CodeBuild, and CodeDeploy can be utilized to establish these pipelines.
Consider Your Next Certification: If you're uncertain about your next AWS Certification path, think about the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification. This popular option covers a wide array of AWS services and fundamental architectural principles.
Keep Up with AWS: AWS regularly introduces new services and updates existing ones. Stay informed by following the AWS News Blog, attending AWS events (such as re:Invent and AWS Summits), and joining AWS webinars and online workshops.
Gain Practical Experience: Consider engaging in hands-on labs and AWS projects. AWS provides a free tier that allows you to gain practical experience at a minimal cost.
Network: Engage with other AWS professionals in online forums, meetups, and AWS-hosted events. These interactions can provide valuable insights and may even lead to future job prospects.
Practice: Seek out roles that will enable you to apply your newly acquired skills, such as internships, part-time positions, or volunteering to assist non-profits or small businesses with their AWS requirements.
