Did you deploy it manually or use one AWS deployment services? Did you try to set up a website using S3 for your static content (html, css, JavaScript), Lambda and API Gateway using DynamoDB as the backend and Cognito for Authentication?

In other words. Collecting certifications and passing a multiple choice test are useless without experience. Get some experience.

This is a course that will help you do all of the above (I’m in no way affiliated with it).

Edit: I just saw you don’t want to be a developer. It’s even more important that you learn how to deploy using CodePipeline, CodeBuild, and CodeDeploy to EC2, Lambda, and ECS/Fargate

I am in a similar boat.

TLDR... in software you learn by doing...

I worked at a startup company doing cross-platform frontend stuff... it was wonderful in terms of building up my real-world implementation skills as I was responsible for shipping the entire client(s) ios, android, web, and desktop. But when it came to the backend I had some significant gaps in overall understanding. I decided to build a full-stack Twitter (not using the twitter api) clone using MERN and had a lot of ah-ha moments building and authenticating a REST-api in express and connecting it to a React client. But scaling a barebones mern stack (deployed to a VPS) is a pain, as Im sure you are aware.

I wanted to uncover how companies are building backend products/services at scale in the real world and being a frontend guy I knew all about react and the client-side of things. After some research, i uncovered it was basically serverless. I am a huge audio nerd and have always been interested in how streaming is done and so I started chipping away at a Spotify clone for the last 4 months. I have an aws api gateway in front of some lambdas paired with cognito user pools for auth and dynamo db using s3 and cloudfront for audio storage. I bought a course to fill in the implementation gaps after fully doing a deep dive on how the technology works inside and out.

Do you have any products/services you want to build or are interested in outside of your company. If your one of these blockchain believers build another NFT marketplace and get rich while your at it haha. Or create a little tool for yourself that leverages a backend to accomplish something you would find useful.

I'm prepearing for developer atm, and I'm using this 2 for "HandsOn", Hope it helps.

They might be overlapping, but I find it benefical to see same staff from different prospective.

If you just interested in DEMO's then 1st link is for you.

As you said you worked with AWS Lamda before I would recommend this Udemy Course However in the end (I'm convinced that count for most developer video courses) such material will only give you the basics.

The most stuff I learned was in actually building your own idea / project without much guidance. What also gave me guidance was to see how other projects are implementing and using serverless functions. What helped me a lot, for example, was to look into the code of the "Real World Example" App and see how they implemented (and also compare it to the other implementation I already knew)
