AWS cloud practitioner notes

This post aims to expose the path I took to take the AWS cloud practitioner certification. This post was inspired by [1] and some of the resources I am going to share here were taken from his post as well my own notes from the free official training [2] that AWS offers.

The CCP (Certified Cloud Practitioner) exam is the first certification in the AWS exam list, as such, if you have some experience with AWS it should be no problem to complete it. Therefore, the material needed for this certification depicts the conventions used by aws and its pricing model.

Before going any further the following list is a collection of each topic covered by the certification. Those are based on my own notes from different resources, but mainly from the AWS free course.
