About Cloud Dropout

Who is Cloud Dropout?

Hi, I’m Robert, founder of
I started Cloud Dropout to help you find the best tech advice on the web. That includes career guidance in the tech space, troubleshooting questions, and more!

With over a decade experience working directly in the tech industry, I’m sure you can imagine that I have gained a lot of insight into how technology operates.

I had to learn the hard way by studying and getting over 5 AWS certifications and learning how to provide expert advice to customers I talk to on a daily basis.

How I got Started

I got started with working in the tech industry as a young teenager. Ever since my freshman year of High School, I had been tinkering with computer gaming machines, and even worked with a few small businesses in my home town of San Antonio to begin physically them out for other customers around the area.

Now that I have graduated the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Cyber Security, I am able to continue to work with customers on a much larger scale. I work at AWS as a Solutions Architect, and hold over 5 AWS Certifications, including the AWS Solutions Architect Professional Certification.

I’ve had the opportunity to work on several high profile projects, such as sending the first ever piece of AWS Hardware into Space. The story even got recognized up by the CEO of AWS and major technology publications such as the Tech Crunch.

I regularly contribute to this site as an author, the lead content strategist, and serve as the editor-in-chief.
