Two years later, I attended re:Invent — the yearly conference organized by AWS — in Las Vegas for the first time. I was lucky to pass the Certified Solutions Architect certification without any preparation due to my hands-on experience.
Are you aiming to pass the Solutions Architect Associate (SAA-C02) exam? In this blog, you’ll find my advice on how to prepare for the certification exam. My approach is not the fastest way to get certified but a sustainable and joyful way to learn about AWS that will pay off in the long term.
Welcome to Part 2 of the Cloudcraft API series! If you haven’t configured Postman and Cloudcraft yet, check out Part 1.
The goal of this part is to:
- Use Cloudcraft’s API to make a request to update your existing blueprint
- Apply AWS tagging best practices for filtered snapshots
- Embed your live blueprint into Confluence for your change management or documentation workflow
This is part one of a three part series that will demonstrate how the Cloudcraft API can be used to programmatically snapshot your AWS applications and workloads. These Image or JSON snapshots may be embedded in your Confluence page, Wiki, or HTML page ensuring readers of your documentation always have an up-to-date solution architecture diagram.continue reading
