Christopher, welcome to the community and thanks for your intro post! Those hobbies with web dev and Linux will definitely get you a running start. Not sure what order you plan on taking the certs you listed, but the ISC2 CC will be a walk in the park after passing the Security+. There’s a lot of overlap but the CC is easier (assuming they haven’t changed it since I took the beta).
I hear you about getting more and wider range of content options on the platform. It definitely takes time to build quality content, and it’s also become a very competitive area. There’s a bunch of training out there that will teach the command line, Linux, web dev, etc, but there’s not that much training that truly focuses on teaching cloud security, which is a rapidly growing field with lots of job opportunities and a real need. That’s why we’ve started focusing more on that specialty because I think we can make a bigger impact on focusing in an underdeveloped area than trying to compete with all of the other trainers in the space teaching basically the same skills, just in a different way :). Of course, learning cloud security also requires learning about hardening, detection, CLI, SIEM, etc…and so those will be areas that we continue building training for, just with a nod towards AWS and cloud.
I know that won’t be for everyone but I hope we end up producing content that you are interested and I’m always open to feedback on our topics and our content so please don’t hesitate to jump in!
