    Default RHCSA and AWS, which to do first...or together?

    I'm interested in learning both Red Hat and AWS. Should I do one before the other, or at the same time?

    Linux skills, although certainly not necessary, will help while studying AWS.
    Goals for 2018:
    Certs: RHCSA, LFCS: Ubuntu | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer
    Learn: Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus & Golang | Improve: Docker, Python Programming
    To-do | In Progress | Completed

    Really depends on your current employment situation and where you want to go. Imo, I'd probably go RHCSA as you can pick up AWS on the job quicker than you would the RHCSA/Linux stuff. An employer is probably more likely to take a chance on someone with RHCSA without AWS as opposed to vice versa.

    Thanks for the info! I'll start with Red Hat first.

    I'm planning to do AWS first then RHCSA! Reason mostly to do with cost of the exam (RHCSA cost ~3x more!) and RHCSA being a hands-on exam.
