Becoming a DevOps Engineer: What Does it Take?
If you believe DevOps is the future, you’ll want to start expanding your skills — and experience — to compete for these new jobs. While it’s great to beef up your coding skills, and get familiar with automation tools, you’ll also want to seek out projects and new roles that allow you to exercise the “soft” skills that are at the core of DevOps. Find opportunities to collaborate within and outside of your team. Help your company move to a faster test and deployment rhythm. Be open to listening to others’ ideas. Keep in mind that DevOps is less about doing things a particular way, and more about moving the business forward and giving it a stronger technological advantage.
