The other day I tweeted:
Gwyneth Peña-SiguenzaIf I had to learn cloud from scratch in 6 months, and gain a jr cloud engineer skill set:
- 6 weeks Linux and networking basics.
- 6 weeks learning to code.
- 8 weeks learning a cloud platform.
- 4 weeks some devops practices.
Lots of projects at each phase 😊14:30 PM - 19 Jun 2021
I decided to put a GitHub repo with a learning path, resources, and projects, I would take to gain a junior cloud engineer skillset in about 6 months. Here it is.
This is a guide based on our experiences getting into Cloud and DevOps. Once done, you should have the technical knowledge for roles like:
- System administrator.
- Cloud Support Engineer.
- Cloud Administrator.
You can learn more about our journeys into cloud here:
- Rishab's journey from help desk to DevOps engineer without a degree
- Gwyn's journey from help desk to Cloud engineer without a degree
We tried to keep it as general and using the most popular options (in terms of content, community, and jobs) as possible. The 6 month timeline is something we put in place to help people with planning and accountability. It may take you more or less time for each phase and if it does, that is completely fine.
I also created a YouTube video with an overview of the guide.
This is based on my own experience. Your journey is yours. However, I still wanted to share in case anyone finds something useful.
