We have a lot of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud news in this Curated by Carla issue! So without further adieu let’s get into this issue!
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Another Friday means another This Week In AWS Community post. And this time we’re dealing with the machine learning track’s Slack thread, office hours and an AWS Community Builder survey. Click the link to read the Medium post.
Big Time Development People: I have received this machine learning survey because I am on the machine learning track. The other AWS community manager says in her email to type a random 12-string code in the Slack thread once you’re done to qualify to win a prize. Stumped I email her asking where is this Slack thread at because I cannot find it. Come to find out that here I am in year 2 and have not been added to the AWS machine learning Slack thread the whole time. I am in complete disbelief. I also learn that there are office hours too. I will ask about receiving the specialty AWS free exam voucher since there is a machine learning specialty exam.
Very busy week with Google Cloud Jumpstart and shot two videos. The first (thirteenth session recap) dealt with the final career development session. The second (fourteenth) dealt with the first mentoring program session.
This Thursday, June 16, 2022, Microsoft releaes its AZ-720 Azure Support Engineer exam into general availability. This means that the beta scores should be availabile within 2 weeks or around June 30, 2022.
Microsoft has also released its own dedicated SC-100 learning path. No more collections of AZ-500 and SC-200. I have opined that the SC-100 is more a combination of SC-200 + SC-300. Click the video link to learn more.
I want to end this week’s Curated by Carla with a Twitter Space on Terraform. Teraaform is cloud-agnostic (not created by cloud providers like AWS, Azure or GCP) infrastructure as code. Listen to learn more about it.
