I would really like to know.
Will there be more AWS courses and clouding computing courses added to ITProtv?
First off, thanks for watching. With regards to upcoming cloud courses, we are currently looking at recording the following courses:
- AZ-100: Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Deployment
- AZ-101: Microsoft Azure Integration and Security
- AWS Certified Big Data Specialty
- AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty
- AWS Certified Security Specialty
There may be more, but these are currently the planned recordings. Hopefully, that helps.
I'm really glad to see the AWS Big Data Specialty on the list. Plenty of TWIT Security Now viewers will like the AWS Security Specialty. (When you record the AWS Security Specialty course, make sure to have Leo Laporte mention it in your Security Now ads.)
I'm currently going through your AWS Solutions Architect Associate course. I don't see AWS Solutions Architect Professional on your to-do list. It would be nice as a way to add extra solutions architect depth, even for people just planning to take the Associate-level exam. Just a thought.
Back in May 2018, @Angie suggested that an updated Cloud+ course is taking a backseat to vendor-specific cloud courses, because AWS/Azure/GCP certs are more valuable to employers than Cloud+.
By October, she said "As the Official Video Partner of CompTIA we will be updating [Cloud+] in Q1 2019."
Judging by @Justin-Dennison66's list of planned courses, I'm guessing that Cloud+ CV0-002 is on the back-burner again.
While I like the idea of vendor-neutral certs in general, I think prioritizing AWS and Azure courses is the right thing to do. It's what employers care about (and pay high salaries for).
Fun fact: AWS Associate and Professional certs provide enough CEUs to automatically renew the Cloud+. So does the MTA Cloud Fundamentals cert.
@james-parsons Cloud+ is still planned for this year. We have the flexibility to create that content while still focusing on vendor specific training, so we are. There is so much content to create, we listen to our members, the marketplace and try to make the best decisions on where we feel technology is headed. Thank you!
Looking forward to
AZ-100: Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Deployment
AZ-101: Microsoft Azure Integration and Security
Will Adam Gordon be presenting these?
