I'd like to share my experience with you.
I got into AWS as part of my work at IO Connect Services with one of our customers. It's exciting as it's my first time doing Serverless and Cloud computing with AWS Lambda. Because of this, and other plans in my list, I decided to prepare for the AWS CDA exam. One thing I didn't realize is that there's a lot you have to learn for this, so in my mind it's not an associate level and you'll see why.
First of all, the topics you have to learn, and mostly memorize are:
- AWS Cloud computing fundamentals.
- Identity and Access Management (IAM).
- Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2).
- Elastic Block Store (EBS).
- Simple Storage Service (S3).
- Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
- Elastic Load Balancer (ELB).
- Simple Workflow Service (SWF).
- Simple Queue Service (SQS).
- Simple Notification Service (SNS).
- AWS Fundamentals.
- Designing and Developing.
- Deployment and Security.
