Amazon certifications?

So it looks like Amazon released a certification:
AWS Certification

Also they're having a conference in a few weeks:
AWS re:Invent 2013

    Interesting, I know Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Cloud Computing Servers is a pretty big deal.



    It is very heavily used in business, so it's not too much of a surprise that they would want certified professionals.

    CBT Nuggets has 2 series about AWS and its certification.

    Definitely going for the cert after I complete my CCNA. Per my suggestion, we have already started using AWS at work for pretty much every server that doesn't need to be on site.

    I think it will be a worth while investment for sure. At the same time you'll want certifications on the underlying OS you plan to deploy to their cloud.
