How to become an AWS DevOps engineer?

AWS, or Amazon Web Service, is a cloud service and computing platform provided by Amazon Web Services offers cloud computing platforms to businesses and organizations that do not have the financial or infrastructure resources to run their own servers. DevOps is a development and operations methodology that aims to shorten the systems development life cycle and provide continuous delivery with high IT quality.

The concept of DevOps refers to the close, symbiotic relationship between development (Dev) and operations (Ops) departments. The goal is to bring about more efficient application release management by standardizing and automating development environments; AWS supports this process by providing services and tools that enable DevOps teams to build, store and deploy applications.

Skills required to become an AWS DevOps engineer

You must always start by learning the fundamental skills that can get you high-paying AWS DevOps engineer jobs. Let us now understand what you need to know!

1. Continuous delivery

If you want to be a DevOps engineer for Amazon Web Services, you can't just have experience using CD tools and systems. You'll also need to understand their inner workings, so you can integrate them together and build fully functioning delivery pipelines. For instance, you'll need to understand how to commit, merge, build, and deploy code. The AWS DevOps engineer needs both experience and theoretical knowledge of the different tools

2. Cloud

To be an AWS DevOps engineer, a candidate must be an expert authority on AWS services, tools, and best practices. Product development teams will approach them with questions on several services and ask for recommendations on how to use them and when to use them. In addition to a broad understanding of AWS technology, an AWS DevOps engineer should also have a strong understanding of the limits of services, tools, and potential pitfalls they may run into in specific situations.

3. Observation Skills

Shipping new applications to production is great. However, it's even better if you know what they are being used for. Being observant is critical for this position. An AWS DevOps engineer should make sure that an application and the systems it runs on have effective monitoring, logging, and alerting solutions. Application Performance Monitoring software can provide crucial insights into an app's inner workings, making repairs and custom code fixes much easier to complete.

4. Docker

Docker, an open platform for developing, shipping, and running distributed applications, provides a method for separating applications from infrastructure. By leveraging Docker’s methodology for shipping code quickly, you can cut the delay between writing and running code in production. Using containers instead of virtual machines, you can optimize the performance of your apps by reducing the overhead associated with running multiple processes.

5. Linux

The Linux operating system is open-source software. It can be used as an embedded OS for a variety of applications. Because Linux is free, it is often used in network operating systems for routers, switches, domain name system servers, home networking devices, and more.

6. DevOps

DevOps is organizational culture and set of principles centered on communication, collaboration, integration, and automation of software development processes. This culture enables developers and operations engineers to work together more efficiently while automating the software delivery process. DevOps is essential to organizations that need to deliver new services or updates quickly in a competitive environment.
