I’m continuing obtain AWS Certifications.
Several days ago I’ve got my first AWS Certified Developer – Associate status
Well, what can I say, it was not VERY difficult, but you definitely need to spend some time after passing AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate for learning DynamoDB, ElasticBeanstalk and CloudFormation deeper.
How to prepare yourself
What is not covered…
- You need to understand specifics of web-services interaction using HTTP protocol
- You need to understand S3 bucket optimization technics for storing lots of content
- You need to understand how DynamoDB Indexes are influencing on DynamoDB performance
- You need to understand DynamoDB security and encryption options
- You need to understand how to change visibility timeouts in SQS and how they are influencing on price and performance.
- You need to remember SQS message structure and main format.
- You need to remember all ElasticBeanstalk supported languages and platforms, what it allows you to do and what not
- You need to be able to read CloudFormation templates and understand intrinsic functions structure.
- And the last aspect. You need to understand the basics of Serverless architecture and how it can be built using pure AWS services like Lambda, API Gateway and DynamoDB, for example.
That’s it for now. Good luck to everybody in passing AWS Certified Developer – Associate exam!
