Probably the best course material on the inner-workings of AWS KMS that I've seen to date. Highly recommended if pursuing AWS certifications.
Course is very easy to understand and very practical. Great job. Looking forward for your other courses.
Very well done. Thorough and comprehensive. For folks new to this field, watch it multiple times to clearly differentiate the various options. Few examples of passing and accessing custom tags and tips on cost optimization would have made it perfect. Hats off for providing tons of examples.
