There Should Not Be Any In You Either!

You should still be participating in labs, learning paths, blogging and doing hackathons. Even now that I’ve been in the program since May, I have created my This Week in AWS Community blog series, received my AI-100 Azure AI Engineer certification, actively participating in promoting the new AWS Community Builder application process…
