    I had a bit of an odd issue with the downloading of shows on my Android Phone last week. As i was waiting to board my plane back to the UK, i downloaded several episodes of the AWS series to watch on the plane back. Downloading the 5 episodes on the app was completed, i checked one of the episodes and it played fine. On the aircraft at 30,000ft (without mobile signal) only the video that i had previewed in the terminal played. the others failed to play despite showing downloaded but with the error message unable to play video.,,,,how wierd is that?

    ive also managed to replicate the issue on the ground i downloaded a video and shut off the internet connect, i get unable to play video unless i switch on the internet.
    Has anyone else had this issue or have a fix or tell me what i am doing wrong?

    Any news on when a Show on Aurora will be covered. I understand the 2018 CSA-A Exam will cover this at a high level.

    Thanks Ronnie, Makes sense

    Although maybe the Month and year when the show was released may be a way around that. So that it give us an indication of how current the shows is.

    eg. for the AWS exams released in April 2018, the show whether it be recorded in december 2017 or March 2018 will have an release date of April 2018. Just a thought.

    Also worth mentioning, If and when the objectives change perhaps it could be noted in the lecture notes at the bottom of the video any changes to the exam and any whitepapers the shows are based on. That way the membership can be assured that the information has been amended and referenced to it. That way the site is always relevant and as updated as it can be. Just another suggestion to make ITPRO.TV the best platform out there.

    I notice that the show on SQS makes no mention of the FIFO (First In First Out). Since this was released before the 2018 AWS CSA A Exam revamp, I believe it could be contained within it. Perhaps a quick video introducing it may be help-

    I think it would be a great idea for the record dates for each show to be shown beside each course/episode. It will enable us to see how current and up to date the information is and whether information may need to be supplemented from elsewhere when doing certs. In this fast pace world of IT, I appreciated it can be a struggle to prepare fresh content as technology changes.

    What do you guys think?

    Hi All

    I´m just about to start my preparations for the 2018 AWS CSA hopefully by the end of January. I find it helpful to have a comprehensive list of topics which are required for the exam to hand when I´m studying the material so i can check it off as i go along. Does anyone have this ar know where i can find one?

    Hey Guys....Can anyone recomend a good AWS Solutions Architect text book,

    I was given the Sybex AWS CSA official study guide by Joe Baron for the previous exam and wanted something similar for the 2018 exam.

    the Sybex 2018 exam Study guide is only our in March 2019 :(

    is it worth purchasing a study guide? Is there much difference between the two exams?
