If you are planning to shift your career for a DevOps role, this article will help you in finding where you are what you got to know in order to achieve your DevOps goal.
Let me explain to you what does the term DevOps actually mean. It is the combination of Development and Operations followed by one group of staff in delivering the software. That is a grouping of software lifecycle procedures into DevOps culture for timely delivery and efficient output.
So in order to attain effective results DevOps model has a list of tools which highlights it.
But most of these tools are very well known and mostly been used by many of us. So if you like to switch your career to DevOps you gotta just juice up only with the ones that you might not know from the list.
The stages for DevOps involves Configure Versioning Package Deployment Execution and Monitoring.
The below diagram has example tools used in the respective places.
So if you had noticed here, the motto for DevOps would be building a fully automated end-to-end software development life-cycle.
Right from configuration to monitoring which helps you track defects and effectively fix it in real time. Most of the testing is automated and henceforth we would be having a valid production software anytime.
So coming back to our topic, I shall give you an example. Being a Software Test automation engineer I had handson in most of the devops tools without my knowledge, like git, docker, jenkins, docker, etc. These things are actually the core objects of devops which I have experience so for me to switch to DevOps I just got to train the remaining configuration and monitoring part. I believe that like me many of us would have experience in these tools and that says “Viola! your half way through devops”.
Note: It is best to know Linux, python, and AWS as these are the common technologies used by most of the industries.
Now train yourself in the required tools and make your DevOps dream come true. Happy Coding !
