Last week saw the 2022 AWS re:Invent at Las Vegas, bringing together AWS customers and members of the public to look at a number of new futures made possible with AWS services. We were keen to look at the new ways in which AWS is promoting training and practice with in-demand skill based sessions. We’ve added what we feel are the most exciting developments in the training and certification space in our insight below.
AWS yet again, have gone above and beyond with their vast selection of technical breakout content. This year they focused on both intermediate and expert level sessions which are available on-demand right here. Unlike last yer, they’ve made it much easier to find the theme that fit’s your specific area of learning, creating large playlists in sub sections such as; Business Apps, Cloud Operations, Compute, Analytics, AI/ML, Architecture and so on. We’d highly recommend checking out the AI/ML playlist from the top breakout sessions. These cover some useful areas for further training and specialisation such as ‘Boost user engagement with Amazon Personalize‘ and ‘Detect and resolve biases in AI‘.
Next on the list this year are the AWS Builder labs. These labs allow you to get free, hands on experience in a live AWS sandbox environment. You as a user can explore real-world scenarios and follow step-by-step instructions in the AWS Management Console. Currently, the Labs cover topics such as machine learning, security and networking, but will have over 150 sessions available before the year is out.
Unlimited sandbox (first come first serve)
If you’ve signed up to the event then be sure to access the unlimited self-paced labs, available on a first-served basis. The Lab topics range from introductory to expert level and take approximately 40 – 120 minutes to complete. They boast a variety of topics which are extremely helpful in introducing you to new service and mechanics within the AWS world.
