What about someone who's trying to figure out how to become a DevOps engineer?
How would you advise they'd go about that?

There is probably hundreds of posts on r/devops just about that. IMO everyone is different. I seen guys becoming a Jr.DevOps Engineer straight out of college because they knew or know thing or two that comes with it. But then there are some that go from help desk to sys engineer to dev to devops ...

I bought a homelab and that was the pivotal moment for me. Figuring out how to set up a hypervisor and deploy applications in a somewhat consistent manner...still not quite there yet. It's a lot of playing around with things and just enough reading to understand why you're doing the things you do.
