Checking In

Hellooooo!

Happy Friday y’all. I’m in a really good mood today lol, this issue’s giphy accurately represents how I feel because I am READY to decompress this weekend. The weather is better, the sun is out, I am hoping Spring is around the corner because I am tired of being cold. *ends rant lol*

Before you dive into this week’s issue I wanted to let you know I am hosting another giveaway *insert cheering*. This week’s giveaway is sponsored by a good friend (shoutout to Guillermo) and the team at AWS. I have ten $50 AWS credits to giveaway.

What are AWS credits you ask? They are vouchers to help you save on your amazon web services bill. If you are someone who is interested in getting your "hands dirty" in the AWS platform by building out your services, you know spinning up services can cost you some moolah. Well, 2021 Christmas came early so let me bless you with some vouchers so you can go practice for free okay, okay. To enter, just fill out the form here.

Enjoy the newsletter!
