In Dec 2020 I began learning AWS and immediately got the bug.
Since then I have passed my CCP, & Solution Architect Associate exams, in between keeping my skills fresh by mentoring AWS Academy students, I’ve also started learning Python, Java, and Terraform, spent an entire weekend completing AWS CloudQuest (with a kickass avatar) and I’m setting my sights on Docker and Kubernetes next.
My first major project is now live on my project page:
The Choon Finding Gizmo was a final project created my myself and two classmates during Code First Girls “Intro to Python” course, it is a labour of love that works perfectly and sparked in me a real interest in APIs.
Once the course was done, I wanted to introduce our baby to the world, however, in order to get CFG ready for her debut, I had to learn a lot, and fast.
In order to get this Choon Finding Gizmo ready to face the world, I taught myself some basic HTML and CSS to get this site up and running, learned how to use Flask and Zappa to deploy the code, and rewrote certain parts of the code to get it to play nicely with Flask.
I hope you all enjoy it and I look forward to having more exciting projects to post about on this site!
I’m currently on the job-hunt, so please do get in touch if you have a role for which you think I may be suitable.
