Overall Satisfaction with A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

I think the biggest problem that ACG [A Cloud Guru] is solving is to match three elements equate the knowledge of all the members of the team, also even non-technical people the current pace of the development of AWS services, the demands of the clients for solutions in the cloud. Then, the company is able to close more business deals, the clients are happy with their solutions and all the team members feel satisfied with the level of understanding they have of the AWS Services and other Cloud Providers.
  • Sandboxes, because it gives you a real hands-on experience.
  • Hire really good and top developers with real experience in the field.
  • Organize their content in an easy way and keep updating it.
  • More material on other cloud providers GCP, Azure, Huawei.
  • Extend the sandboxes to other cloud providers not only AWS.
  • Include more material for non-technical people, sometimes the sales teams are completely lost in the platform but they would like to learn about it.
  • Number of people certified, on the current year I can remember around 4 of them.
  • That impacts positively the quality of professionals and/or services you can offer to the clients.
Compared to O'Reilly in general, the ACG [A Cloud Guru] content is more specific to AWS and with more examples and real-world use cases. O'Reilly is broader in terms of technologies you can learn, but none of them go deep into the details. Another thing is that O'Reilly focuses more in publish books and ACG is more about video learning.
Really good, because the professors in ACG come from different backgrounds which enrich the experience of having multiple points of view about the problems. This is helpful for students which can recall a similar problem whenever they have to propose a solution in their day-to-day work. Another thing, is the stack they are using is most of the time the most recent one, so you won't feel like you are learning old and not updated stuff.
Quickly implementation of Proof of Concepts in the cloud by doing similar projects in ACG by recalling labs and sandboxes in ACG, improving the current solutions by using the appropriate AWS services. Provoque a similar level of knowledge in the company in terms of AWS, which gives more flexibility for turnovers among employees.
