AWS Newbies brings you Amazon Web Services tutorials, resources, news, and certification study tips for absolute beginners.
The first time I touched AWS was when I began studying for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam in June, 2018. On September 4th, 2018, I successfully passed the Certified Cloud Practitioner Exam. And I’m here to help you do the same!
When I began studying for the exam, I had absolutely 0 experience in AWS. I quickly found that it’s very difficult to find resources that successfully break up the technical jargon in ways I can understand. As a person without a traditional technical background, I found that I don’t speak the same “language” as many of the resources offered. So, with 2 weeks to go to my exam, I decided to create the resources I wish I had. And you’re reading the final product!
