    If you want to start programming and lack confidence, I'd highly suggest starting with Python. IMO Python is by far the most forgiving language that's still useful to know.

    Everyone feels inadequate but most can get the degree.

    Late reply, but don't worry about it brah. As long as you're expanding your knowledge that is what really matters! Personally I've never given too much weight to certifications. I know they're useful, but the knowledge you gain from studying for a cert is more important.

    Mainly doing it for myself brah. To learn as much as I can. Learning is fun and certifications give me discipline. It's never been for employers that I pursue them. I wanted to get RHCE because I needed to prove to myself I'm ok with Linux stuff, did/doing AWS certs because it forces me to see things in a difference way than legacy IT. I wanna go for OSCP because..why not, hacking is fun. etc.

    +1 on this. The real gain you receive is the actual studying part of it. The test is just a test IMO.

    So, I went on vacation and when I came back to work, I found out my job title changed. Now, I'm a Systems Administrator IV. Nice raise came with it as well. I had no idea this was going to happen but I'll take it.

    Cheers boyos!

    Cabling management

    This is way beyond me (I'm a software guy) and Googling has had limited success... I've got my computer on a metal desk (actually a Craftsman workbench) and I want to route the cabling (power, Ethernet, USB, HDMI, possibly Firewire) properly. There are places for bolts and hooks on the sides, so I got the power strips up off the floor. For routing cabling along the back, I was thinking of using magnetic hooks instead of drilling holes. The question I can't get a good answer for is if this will affect data signals at all. I'd use separate hooks for power and data cables. The magnets seem to be pretty strong (one hook can hold up to 30LBs) so my concern is the field could interfere with data signals, or the crosstalk from the cables could make for problems. None of my patch cables say they're STP, so I assume they're all UTP. I have no idea what shielding (if any) USB, HDMI or Firewire have. Insight is appreciated!

    To the brahs making 100k+ a year. What are you doing to make that much? Currently making 50k a year in IT. Considering going back to school for CS degree or getting some AWS certs. Are you able to get an amazon web services job with just the certs alone?

    I'm in a DevOps/SRE role. Yup certs can help you find a job, but I got my first aws job without being certified. I did know my way around linux so that helped me land the role.

    Knowing programming/scripting is a huge benefit in landing a job, if you already have a bachelors degree I wouldn't go back to school to get a CS degree.

    If you want to get into programming search for the free CS50 course that Harvard offers on https://www.edx.org/. I primarily code in python, Go, and Bash. I learned a lot of basic python programming from following this e-book https://automatetheboringstuff.com/. The author has a video course on udemy that is only $20.

    This. For me, I didn't get any certs or a four year degree. I just started learning as much as possible. The thing that pushed me a lot was my passion. When I walk into an interview, hiring managers can see my passion. I also do a ton of content creation so people can see my work in the forms of:

    1. A public GitHub
    2. I create training courses
    3. I write blogs
    4. I speak at public events (virtual and on site)
    5. I'm active on Twitter
    6. I have a YouTube channel

    If you want to get into programming search for the free CS50 course that Harvard offers on https://www.edx.org/. I primarily code in python, Go, and Bash. I learned a lot of basic python programming from following this e-book https://automatetheboringstuff.com/. The author has a video course on udemy that is only $20.
    Haven't posted in a while. I have AWS Developer training in a couple of weeks and off I go to take the exam. I am nervous as I read that only a few will pass the AWS exams. My company requires all IT get AWS certified. What was your exam and did you find that the questions pertain to your reading/training material? Any suggestions on how to study the exam greatly appreciated.

    I am learning and creating AWS lambda functions now. I like it a lot using the AWS toolkit.

    1. A public GitHub
    2. I create training courses
    3. I write blogs
    4. I speak at public events (virtual and on site)
    5. I'm active on Twitter
    6. I have a YouTube channel
    That is so cool! I actually like reading programming books than reading it on GitHub. Lol.

    I took the Solutions Architect Associate and Devops Engineer Professional exams. The associate level exams are well covered by https://acloudguru.com/. For the developer associate I would get comfortable with codepipeline, if you have experience with any other CI/CD tools, codepipeline will be similar. It looks like they'll be testing you also on severless concepts so I would study up on Lambda and how to set up decoupled applications with SQS and using Lambda as a consumer.

    The AWS whitepapers helped me a lot as well, the exam creators love to take concepts from there and build them into the exam.

    Thank you so much! I paid for some classes at acloudguru.com last year but never finished them because work got so busy. Now they are all expired. Wow lots of stuff to learn. I use Maven to build/package and SAM CLI to deploy my functions to AWS. I just did a quick read on codepipeline on the lambda developer guide. Did not know what that was. Hadoop is so much easier than AWS. Lol.

    hahah yeah AWS is massive, there is an AWS service for each technology out there, for example the AWS managed version of hadoop is EMR.

    Repped you on post # 4758

    Nice! I have to look into EMR after all the other stuff I'm learning. We have a pretty good hadoop system at work right now so I don't think we have a need to switch over to AWS for big data yet. What are your thoughts on Ambari for hadoop?

    I agree with you on AWS is a beast. Just remembering the roles and different policies to attach to them is a headache. I have not even looked into the other databases they have as I mostly work with Oracle.

    As for AWS development, I noticed that it is mostly geared toward js and python. No lambda editor for java. Not sure what happened but after configuring Cloud 9 environment nothing shows up when trying to log in. Very frustrating. Currently using IntelliJ but more of a Eclipse person.

    So cool to find AWS people here.

    I haven't used any big data tech in a professional setting. The most I've ever done is some hadoop in college and I have already forgotten it all lol.

    Location plays a role in this as well. Understand that chasing that arbitrary number might be getting in the way of you actually reaching that goal. Like jerzyfit said, bring some passion for whatever it is you do. Its really easy to see what motivates people. Just love what you do and remember also that the more places you apply to, the better chance you have of getting hired at your target.

    Agree with Devilbones. I'm nowhere near 100k but if I was in US and in major cities would be making over 100 easy with same level of education/experience/skills. Nothing kills the IT dream like being stuck in Toronto and settling for scraps/current salary.

    I have a question for you IT guys. As someone in college working towards an IT related degree, should I work on getting certs now as well or wait until I'm closer to finishing school?

    Closer to finishing school or after you have graduated. You should be prioritizing internship because work experience is everything in IT.
