On Thursday 22nd October 2020 over 60 members attended a Virtual Meet Up hosted by CirrusHQ. James Lucas (CEO), Muhil Vannan (Technical Lead) and John Walker (Solutions Architect Team Leader) – who each have both the AWS Professional Solutions Architect and DevOps certifications – presented a session which covered the basics of getting AWS certified, talked about how to prepare and study, and provided a few personal insights and tips.
There were enthusiastic questions from the audience throughout the event and a set of test questions for the participants!
For anyone with an interest in starting their journey with AWS certifications, this was a great event.
