I'm an ex-AWS employee, now working for myself. Together with a friend of mine (who also recently left Amazon) we tried an experiment and put almost everything we know about AWS in one short digital book. We launched the book yesterday (xmas day) and it sold over $13K already: https://twitter.com/dvassallo/status/1210352939539161088
This is the first time I got paid for something I wrote, so I'm still very new to this. But I'm happy to share what I learned so far, so please feel free to ask me anything.
And here's a discount link for the book if you'd like to check it out: https://gum.co/aws-good-parts/hn
