This week I became a certified Cloud Practitioner.

Awkwafina celebrating an award

Very exciting stuff! This wasn’t strictly necessary, and doesn’t give me any permission to do anything special, but it’s nice to recognise personal development.

I celebrated this success by spending a day and a half messing with databases and planning ways to improve resilience and save money.

I’m really happy with how much I’ve learnt over the past year with AWS, and it’s quite empowering to know the possibilities of what I can build now. But I’m aware that I’ve dived deep into one cloud provider of many, so I’m interested in looking at direct competetitors (Azure, Google Cloud Platform) and other technologies in the space (e.g. Kubernetes).
