This post is straight and clear brag about myself. Last week I passed one of the most challenging exams I've ever had - Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Architect!
The hardest one I failed miserably, and it was all technical. On second thought, all other certifications I've obtained may be a little too technical. What I like about the latest one - Google tries to make exams close to real-life challenges - make technical decisions, narrow down potential root causes, and carefully decide how you will present your design to stakeholders and what arguments you should use. It was a long and somewhat rocky road, but I did it, and only time will show if it is worth something.
