This week I passed my first exam, Solutions Architect Associate. To achieve this goal I used the exam blueprint from AWS and also the Well Architected Framework from AWS. Next to these documents I played around with some Qwiklabs training and for me the largest help was the online training from Ryan Kroonenburg, from A Cloud guru. Next to the online training I also used the practice exams from Ryan. Next on the list: Certified Developer Associate.
