About Me - Robin

About Me - Robin

I have been working in technology for over 20 years, and with AWS technologies since about 2010. My main focus has been on traditional infrastructure and networking but have a strong security mindset. Up until recently I had little DevOps experience but something I have concentrated on over the last 2 years.

Currently I am working for Accenture as part of the Accenture Amazon Business Group (AABG) as a senior technical architect and lead of the UK&I Well Architeced practice.

I am also part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) 2021 Community Builders scheme. My category is Networking and Content Delivery but I will also be engaging with wider AWS topics and solutions.


All information provided, opinions given and recomendations made on this site are my personal view and not those of either Accenture or Amazon Web Services.

AWS Certification Program

I currently hold 9 AWS Certifications:

  • AWS Certified DevOps Engineer – Professional
  • AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional
  • AWS Certified Security – Specialty
  • AWS Certified Advanced Networking – Specialty
  • AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate
  • AWS Certified Developer – Associate

In addition to these certifications I am also a member of AWS SME Program and have been involved with writing exam questions for the Advanced Networking exam. For this I have achieved my SME Specialty badge along with some exclusive swag.

SME Specialty was issued by Amazon Web Services Training and Certification to Robin Ford.
This digital badge validates that this subject matter expert (SME) significantly contributed to the AWS Certification exam program. This SME has volunteered their valuable expertise in at least two Specialty certification exam development events.
