Maybe you've got another dozen ideas for features you think are needed for your MVP.
But until you've launched and you've got actual (paying) users, you've got no guarantee that your business case is even valid.

Keep your scope as small as possible.

Intersects with the previous point: don't make the shinest code, with 100% code coverage and the perfect architecture, as it requires way too much effort.

Don't over or underdo it.
Make it work & manageable.

The concepts are crucial & being confident in them is a necessity.

For seriously working with AWS, there's no way around IAM.
Skipping to understand its core principles will bite you again and again in the future๏ธ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

There you are, on the way to becoming a cloud engineer and architect.

โ€ข learned a lot about AWS' core services
โ€ข probably taken some certifications
โ€ข built small services yourself

... but how to get into your first project?

What I've learned over the years ๐Ÿงตโ†“
I've been in numerous interviews as a technical interviewer โœ๏ธ

Upfront & honest: without prior experience, it's not an easy task to get hired.

But there's no need to get discouraged.

There's a lot you can do to drastically enhance your chances.

First: About job descriptions and requirements

AWS, Node.js, Java, Containerization/Docker, ECS/Kubernetes, Serverless & 10yrs experience in everything.

Likely, you've seen vacancies like this with only one question in mind:
"Are they looking for a whole team?"
