What is DevOps?
DevOps (Development Operations) is an approach to collaboration and communication between the development team and the operations team within a company. The aim of DevOps is to streamline the software development life cycle, from ideation to production, enabling quick and reliable deployment and updates.
What is DevSecOps?
DevSecOps, meaning Development, Security, and Operations, is the practice of integrating security testing at every stage of the software development process. It’s an approach that addresses culture, automation, and platform design, integrating security as a shared responsibility throughout the entire IT life cycle.
In the collaborative framework of DevOps, security is currently a shared and integrated responsibility throughout the process. This practice involves considering application and infrastructure security from the outset. It also entails automating certain security gates to prevent slowing down the DevOps workflow. In DevSecOps teams, security issues are addressed as they arise, when they are easier, faster, and less costly to resolve. Security becomes a shared responsibility rather than something exclusive to a security silo.
What is MLOps?
MLOps, or Machine Learning Operations, is an approach that combines DevOps practices with the development and deployment of Machine Learning models. The goal of MLOps is to develop, train, and deploy ML models with automated procedures that integrate Data teams, developers, security, and infrastructure. The objective is to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the Machine Learning model development process and its implementation in production environments.
Top keys to being a successful DevOps Engineer
If you want to become a great DevOps engineer, these are the things you should keep in mind, according to Aman Pathak:
Never stop learning
Staying current with new technologies is challenging in the ever-evolving DevOps landscape, but you need to learn continuously to be a great DevOps engineer. Embrace continuous learning, take advantage of emerging opportunities and stay hungry to learn to succeed in the dynamic DevOps field.
More than writing code
DevOps engineers need many more skills than just writing code. Automating tasks, understanding systems and networks and knowing how to communicate effectively are key to this role.
Integrating new technologies
Continuous learning and integration of new technologies are essential to improve software development and become better professionals.
The goal of DevOps is also to reduce errors. Here, automation is of great help. Also, collaboration plays a big role in DevOps as it makes it possible to communicate effectively with the teams involved, and share information and ideas in real time.
