Enhance your cloud career during lockdown

It’s on. The COVID-19 pandemic is, and will continue to be, the biggest disruption to our society’s way of life for 2020. While we’re still trying to figure things out, most of us are working from home, or, worse, have lost our jobs. 

Truth be told, I’m a big fan of working at home. Even with a manageable commute, going into an office can mean about three hours of unproductive time every workday. You contribute more to carbon emissions in numerous ways and miss out on things happening at home. 

So, when life give you lemons…

Here are a few projects you can take on to spend your downtime in productive and career-enhancing ways.

Get a specific cloud certification. If you’re like me, you’ve procrastinated getting certified in a specific cloud provider. Having taught a few of the courses over the years, it’s safe to assume that most certifications worth having are intense and time consuming. 

The good news is that most cloud certifications are delivered over the Web these days, either by the cloud providers themselves, or by third-party training companies such as LinkedIn Learning, Cloud Guru, SimpliLearn, and many others.
