    Default AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional Study Guide

    My complete AWS CSA Pro Study Guide is now up on my blog. Although it is written for the Pro level, you can use it for the SA Associate - just skip some deep dives and masterclases.
    1. Introduction
    2. High Availability and Business Continuity
    3. Costing
    4. Deployment Management
    5. Network Design
    6. Data Storage
    7. Security
    8. Scalability and Elasticity
    9. Cloud Migration and Hybrid Architecture

    Nice!

    Is your blog hosted in AWS?

    No, it's WordPress hosted on Azure. My company has been a pure MS partner for a long time and our blogging platform was migrated a few months after we started supporting AWS. If I had my own personal blog, I would host it on AWS. However, I don't blog enough to justify paying the hosting fees.

    Good stuff man! I passed the exam already. But this study guide is pretty comprehensive. You should put it on Reddit AWS too!

    I'd be keen to work with you on getting the DevOps Professional guide. I have already passed that exam too though.

    @Muhammed H - the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate should be your first certification.
    Goals for 2017:
    RHCSA, RHCE, LFCS: Ubuntu | Project+ | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer | Learn Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus, Golang | Improve Python Programming

    @DoubleNNs ...Thanks for the reply man. By the way, is that ok for someone with zero cloud experience/knowledge to go for that cert?

    It's as good a start as ever. If you sign up for AWS, for a year you'll have a "free tier" of services on your account. Great to play around w/ get your feet wet, and pay little to nothing. You can go through almost all of the exam topics from within the free tier.

    Edit: Out of curiosity, have you looked at the MS Azure certifications?

    Well, the answer is NO. I passed 70-410 exam about 3 month ago, now working on 70-411. Don't know shall I go for Server Infrastructure or change my direction towards MS Azure. But really I want to switch my career to Cloud but not sure where or how to start.

    That's the most detailed guide i've seen.
    Just have one question: With each of the AWS services's FAQ, do i need to remember everything?
    There are too many content in each FAQ and other documents which is so hard to remember.

    Thanks for the list. I think it could be used to prepare for DevOps Pro too.

    This is coming from a non-Cloud person what so ever, where would you all recommend I start. Is there a baseline cert or something that I could get my feet wet in?

    Google.

    Learn some basics on cloud from Googling and Wikipedia. Might also want to explore some podcast options. Then get a free-tier AWS account and start w/ the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate cert.
