Anyone has taken the latest AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate (CSAA) exam?
I'd appreciate sharing any notes with me if you guys might have. :)

I don't even know the CSAA, but I'm not really interested in what Amazon has to offer and it doesn't really meet my need for privacy.

Woooah sorry that this went unnoticed for so long. I have not, but I'll see if some other members have @Krusty the Senile, @Ghost, @Tealk have you guys got CSAA?
No, but I need to.
My certs are near non-existent. All of my work the last few years has consumed my time to the point where I hardly even use the computer outside of work because of how much time I spend each day in front of a screen. That said, this is a REGRET. Although I am grateful for the work & the future potential of our company (Wubur.com), I feel that I need to spend more time developing my personal career with certifications, exams, and I'd like to go as far as taking job interviews for practice & to identify my place in the real world markets. I have my own company (well, I own 49% of it) and we've kept ourselves employed with employees for 3 years now, but I definitely worry that I'll turn 30 in 3 years and will only have my own company as my experience. For someone that can't say "I interned at Google, Amazon, Uber, Facebook, etc.", I definitely would like to increase my effort and dedication to certs. That way I can say "hey, here's my company, here's our books, here's everything I did, and if you don't believe everything I and my company say about my skills then take a look at my certifications too!"

The question is also how meaningful such certificates are, when I look at how many certificates you get as a "gift". I just don't know what to call it correctly when a test is only a show

I only recently got a chance to attend the online AWS summit yesterday. I'm green when it comes to AWS, but there's lots of interesting services that are provided there.

It surely will verify your skills and title since most people rely on professionals instead people who know the job best. In my case, I got a grant to attend a Cloud administration course and take the CSAA exam so I'm currently finding anything on net relating that.

I'd also say that you only get it for showing off your skills before employers and clients, and the rest is the hard work you put in everything.

Nice! The best thing about AWS is that you pay as much as you use (any service) so it saves additional costs and time.

Yeah, exactly - it requires the ability to actually use the skills. I think a lot of people study for certs and then pass the test, followed by forgetting everything about it.
