Confused about learning path for AWS

Greetings,
My company is looking to get me involved with AWS certs and training.

My confusion is some say Solution Arch Associate should come before SysOPS Associate.
Is there a good breakdown of training path or prerequisites for AWS certs?

Thank you for any input.

    So I've been watching some videos about the certs. I followed recommendations to use https://acloud.guru/

    I signed up for the base package when it was on sale. You can usually catch them on sale on his website or udemy. Which you can then use the proof of purchase to redeem on his website.

    He says the order usually goes Developer, Solutions, and SysOps.

    But really I dived into the Solutions Associate and haven't had an issue with understanding the material.

    Unless i'm mistaken, Ryan in the acloudguru videos recommends starting with Solutions Architect, then Sysops (lots of overlap) then finally onto Developer.

    Starting with SA makes sense to me as Sysops builds on a lot of this information.

    I agree with the above - Solutions Architect first.

    However, although it makes sense to go thru the SysOps material 2nd, the Developer exam is a lot easier than the SysOps exam, so it might make sense to do do SA -> Dev -> SysOps
    Goals for 2018:
    Certs: RHCSA, LFCS: Ubuntu, CNCF CKA, CNCF CKAD | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer, AWS Solutions Architect Pro, AWS Certified Security Specialist, GCP Professional Cloud Architect
    Learn: Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus & Golang | Improve: Docker, Python Programming
    To-do | In Progress | Completed
