So its looking like my contract will end in 6 weeks. Its been great, really enjoyed it and will leave on a good note. New management in the US wants my role to be in the US.
So thinking about what might come next. I like to be close to latest tech so DevOps seems to me like an interesting area to explore.
Has anyone moved into DevOps? If so as what role? How is it? What was your career experience leading up to the move? Really appreciate to hear from anyone thats done so. I'll use my break in work to study and do whatever I need to get geared up to move into DevOps. Main driver is that I am interested to understand what its about. Also would like to do a bit of programming.
My career so far:
3 years tech support
7 years global network admin (datacenter operator)
6 years global infrastructure project manger
1 year infrastructure operations manager
Im quite technical and can talk to management. I can write perl and actually really enjoy programming but never had any real work experience with only ever done programming on my own personal project...
