Maximising AWS re:Invent 2019

Amazon Web Services' developer conference AWS re:Invent is just around the corner, and just as usual, it will be hosted in fabulous Las Vegas.

This will be my 4th AWS re:Invent, and I've started to learn how to survive the week and how to get the most out of it. My intention is to try and share what I have learned over the years, so you can relax and just enjoy this amazing experience.

From the inside of an Amazon certification exam

Amazon certifications has really evolved over the years. When I started my certification path there was 5 certificates, three associate and two professionals. This has now evolved into a full program with a total of 11 certs ranging from the foundational Cloud Practitioner to several Specialty certifications.

When I passed my first professional exam at Re:Invent in 2017 I actually thought the questions were really bad. It was almost as much of a reading exercise as an AWS exam. Over the years this has changed a lot and Amazon has really stepped up their game. 

One of the things that has been done is the introduction of the Subject Matter Expert (SME) program. The basics behind that program is to allow experts, within different fields, contribute to the certifications exams in an Item development workshop (IDW).

An IDW is a workshop gathering Subject Matter Experts from all over the world, to create, design, and review questions for a particular AWS certification. 

I got the chance to participate in an IDW for the Alexa Skill Builder - Specialty certification in London at the end of August. 

There are a lot of details that I can’t share with you, but I will try to explain my experience becoming a Certification SME.
