Now let’s head directly towards the required skill and approaches crucial to growing your career as a DevOps Engineer.


Understanding DevOps Culture

Before you jump on the wagon, understanding the DevOps culture is the first stepping stone to your DevOps engineering career aspiration.

Since DevOps brings different teams working under the same roof, DevOps culture is free from the blame game.

The goal is fixed and standard. So, one team’s efficiency or inability affects the entire collaboration.

Instead of “Why should I do it?”, try to say, “I will see what I can do.”


Programming Knowledge

It is a basic skill one requires to become a DevOps professional.

  • Programming language knowledge and skill open your career to a vast horizon of career possibilities, including DevOps.
  • A DevOps professional has to handle debugging code, automated development, and software deployment to integrated database changes. Thus, programming or scripting languages is a concerning requirement for DevOps engineers.
  • DevOps aspiring candidates can consider learning advanced programming languages like Python, Ruby On Rails, Perl, etc., to scale their efficiency.


Learning Linux and OS concepts

Linux Foundation case study reports Linux handles 90% of public cloud workloads.

The majority of companies out there prefer Linux.

Hence, acquiring knowledge in Linux is another top priority of DevOps engineers. You may not need to master Linux, but get a fair understanding of this OS.

There is one more thing.

A DevOps engineer must have a deep understanding of OS concepts like Memory Management, Process Management, I/O Management, etc.


Software Configuration And Deployment

It is another fundamental knowledge required to become a DevOps professional.

Since a DevOps professional holds the potential to handle A to Z in a product development cycle, you must learn about software configuration and deployment.

Additionally, to automate the deployment process, one must know cluster management software and containerization.


CI/CD Pipeline

The complete form of CI/CD is Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery.

Without learning this, one can not become a DevOps engineer. It is one of the most crucial parts of the software development cycle.

The knowledge in CI/CD enables engineers to reduce the cost and bring more efficiency to the development pipeline. Continuous Delivery makes the software release effortless and efficient.


Automation and Monitoring

For DevOps engineers, automation is the prime aspect.

Whether source code handling or software configuration and deployment, the process needs to get automated.

Learn how to navigate tools like Puppet, Git, Docker, Splunk, etc., for successful process automation and monitoring management.


Don’t Forget Cloud

  • Techjury projects that the public cloud computing market will reach $800 million by 2025.
  • Hosting Tribunal reports that 94% of enterprises already use the Cloud.
