It is currently one of the most difficult AWS certification to get with the DevOps one due to the number of services it covers.

A year in Mexico City!

After one year in Mexico City, I decided it was time to write about my experience and maybe give some advice about the best things you can do downtown and outside the city.

Day hike Half Dome, Yosemite

Half Dome is a granite dome at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California. It is a well-known rock formation in the park, named for its distinct shape.
