Learning AWS by Certifications

February 8, 2017


There are so many AWS services, how can I learn them and where do I start? Yujun will guide you through this presentation on how to prepare for the AWS Certification exams and gain recognition from our industry by passing the difficult exams.

Currently, there are 80 people passing AWS Certified Solution Architect – Associate exams everyday, so AWS may decide to raise the bar, thus the earlier you start, the better.

Presented by Yujun Liang

Yujun Liang is an experienced application developer who has been using Java for more than 10 years and has developed many mission critical applications. He is now working as a DevOps Engineer on the Cloud Migration team for Fidelity Investments.

Even though he had touched AWS a couple of times in the past, the areas of the services were limited to certain areas and he never got a chance to work on those services on various day jobs. So he decided to pursue the certifications. Partly as a job requirement from his management.

He passed all 5 certifications in 4 months.
