The answer to this question is, unfortunately, the same as most of the X vs Y questions: it depends.

It depends on what you are trying to achieve or it depends on what kind of tech stack the company you want to work for is using. There are loads of companies using AWS, I mean half the internet runs on AWS, so long run it may be a good thing to pick up on.

The company I work for uses AWS as well and I have almost zero knowledge on the subject, but this doesn't affect my day-to-day job at all. It's outside the scope of my role for the company.

Yep. Basically... don't learn it unless you absolutly have to - to do what you want to do... and even in those cases, try and pass it off to the DevOps person!

In my experience trying to learn things you might need later - or that might help - were never a good choice. Digging deeper into your core domain always yields results though!
