What is DevOps?

  • AWS has a great article that outlines DevOps as a work environment where development and operations teams are no longer “siloed”, but instead work together across the entire application lifecycle – from development and test to deployment to operations – and automate processes that historically have been manual and slow.

What Should I Learn?

  • Emily Wood’s essay - why infrastructure as code is so important into today’s world.
  • 2019 DevOps Roadmap - one developer’s ideas for which skills are needed in the DevOps world. This roadmap is controversial, as it may be too use-case specific, but serves as a good starting point for what tools are currently in use by companies.
  • This comment by /u/mdaffin - just remember, DevOps is a mindset to solving problems. It’s less about the specific tools you know or the certificates you have, as it is the way you approach problem solving.

Remember: DevOps as a term and as a practice is still in flux, and is more about culture change than it is specific tooling. As such, specific skills and tool-sets are not universal, and recommendations for them should be taken only as suggestions.

Please keep this on topic (as a reference for those new to devops).

Hey all! If you had to put together a 2-4 week long self taught curriculum to go from “I understand Docker pretty well” to being able to handle a Jr SRE role (using AWS), what would you recommend?

How about a list of recommended certifications?
