How one solutions architect is forging a unique path to career success

The great thing about cloud is that there are many career opportunities, and many paths to seize those opportunities. In this episode, David talks with Lucy Wang, owner of the YouTube channel, “Tech with Lucy,” about her non-traditional career path. The wide-ranging discussion covers Lucy’s background as a solutions architect, how she started and grew her channel, the skills and training solutions architects need to be successful, how the role is changing, and how cloud itself is evolving.


[Success] is about just getting hands-on, building cloud projects, and depending on what role you want to get into, whether that be a cloud engineer or solutions architect, tailoring your learning based on that.

Lucy Wang is a former solutions architect with AWS. She started her YouTube channel, "Tech with Lucy," to share her experience in learning about cloud computing and the solutions architect role. Her channel now has over 100,000 subscribers and provides advice on how people can gain the technical skills they need to enter the cloud workforce.
