Skills required to become an Azure DevOps engineer

When designing cloud apps, you need different talents and a different attitude than when developing on-premises applications. This is due to the cloud's resilience, global scalability, and capabilities and services that are not accessible on-premises. To stay alive in this new environment, you must improve your present talents and learn new ones. Some of the fundamental abilities required for an Azure DevOps engineer job are listed below.

1. Linux fundamentals and scripting

Companies no longer have to be worried about proprietary operating systems. We are currently living in the era of Linux. The vast majority of companies prefer to run their applications on Linux. As a result, the ability of an Azure DevOps engineer to work with the Linux operating system is critical. Furthermore, most configuration management solutions, including Puppet, Chef, and Ansible, include Linux master nodes. DevOps is a sort of automation that includes infrastructure provisioning. As a result, an Azure DevOps engineer job is to be able to work with and be proficient in at least one scripting language (preferably Python). As a result, Linux and Linux-based programming would be a required DevOps skill set.

2. Continuous integration and continuous delivery

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery, or CI/CD, are at the heart of DevOps. It is the continuous integration of code from several developers, testing it, and finally delivering the successful code to production. Deploying to production will mostly entail the creation of new containers, which will be automated once more via the use of scripts.

3. Key concepts of DevOps

DevOps, contrary to popular belief, is neither a technology nor a tool. It is an approach that does not adhere to a set of rules. As a consequence, firms may adopt the technique by tailoring the framework to suit their own requirements. The fundamental purpose of the DevOps approach is to bring together the Development and Operations teams in order to bridge the gap and accomplish work more rapidly. When companies employ the DevOps method, they can produce high-quality software much more quickly. All of the tools and techniques stated above are utilized to accomplish this process and generate software solutions on time.

4. Scaling application

Scaling your application in, out, up, and down is much easier using the cloud. You may rapidly upgrade to a more capable server and expand the number of application instances, and vice versa. That is up to the Azure developer; they must guarantee that when a new instance of an app is generated, it remains operational. Azure can assist with issues such as global scale. It provides a service called Azure Traffic Manager, which routes users to the best-performing application instance based on their location

5. Monitoring pipeline

Many different services run your system in the cloud. The cloud's scattered and loosely linked architecture makes it tough to gain an overview of what is going on and gain a knowledge of your system. You must set up a pipeline to monitor the services and, if necessary, troubleshoot them. To gain an overview of how things are doing, you may utilize the Azure Monitor service. It is the Azure developer's responsibility to implement them on any apps that need monitoring.
