DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). It aims to shorten the systems development life cycle and provide continuous delivery with high software quality. DevOps engineers need to skillfully mix theory, practice coding and be able to overcome challenges fast. In LinkedIn’s 2019 assessment of the most recruited jobs, a DevOps engineer topped the list. DevOps is thus one of the most sought-after career paths in IT. However, DevOps Engineers are expected to continuously learn since the DevOps space is always evolving and new tools are emerging daily.
