93 ratings

"The Cloud Resume Challenge was one of the best decisions I've ever made."- Stephanie K, Challenge Champion (from bank clerk to Associate Cloud Engineer in 3 months)

A proven way to advance your cloud career.

Since April 2020, the Cloud Resume Challenge has helped thousands of people

  • skill up on cloud,
  • improve their career prospects,
  • and even land cloud jobs from totally non-tech fields like plumbing, professional poker, and HR.

Now, I've packed their top tips, strategies, and resources into one e-book, so you too can build skills, make connections, and get a cloud job FAST.

Actually, make that three books - I've provided cloud-specific editions for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, so you can learn and build for whatever cloud career you want.

"If you want to get your first job in the cloud, there is NO BETTER OFFER right now than the Cloud Resume Challenge."- Shawn "swyx" Wang, author of "The Coding Career Handbook"
