AWS Architect

The cloud is not a thing. It's a vast, interconnected web of things. An ecosystem of things. The Architect Path will help you understand this ecosystem, how different services interact with one another, and how to make the best use of them, while also going deep on services considered foundational for day-to-day cloud architects.

Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you through the exact skills you need to gain to progress from novice to guru across a variety of cloud specialties.

These paths are flexible, so you can hop in where you’re comfortable and start at the appropriate level, whether you’re a total novice or looking to take your skills to the next level. And as with all ACG learning, there’s a major focus on gaining practical experience through Hands-on Labs.
