Excellent article Richard. All the very best for your future endeavors!

Also, I'm currently a junior dev (backend) and after researching about DevOps and understanding it's value in a software business, I accrued a lot of interest in it.

I'll be asking my manager to move me into a DevOps position in the upcoming months. It would be really nice if you could provide some suggestions or tips for this exciting transition, since you have already experienced this before. :)

I've recently decided to put some time on studying OS and Networking concepts to get me started into the very basics.

Hi! Thank you for the wishes.

So all around the industry people define devops differently. It's a bit vague but for me devops is every kind of development related work except for the product development itself. :D so builds, continuous integration, environment management, site reliability, automated deployment, release automation etc. So this can be different depending on the products you guys have. I would tell you to refresh your bash/unix/networking knowledge, but who knows what you need there. All I can say is that I believe it can be an extremely useful thing to get involved in devops because you can learn an immense amount of things that can be useful if you end up managing your own software/business someday.
