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.
Learn the fundamentals of Cloud Computing in 6 months
This is the learning path we would take if we had to start over again and work our way up to a junior cloud engineer skill set in about 6 months. Any links you see ARE NOT AFFILIATE LINKS, we don't want your money. Okay, let's go.
This is a guide based on our experiences of going from help desk to Cloud and DevOps engineers. You journey is yours and you may need to learn different things at different stages.
We tried to keep it as general and using the most popular options (in terms of content, community, and jobs) as possible. Mainly because these things are important when you're getting started. As you grow, you'll need to get specialized in certain areas :)
Study tips and resources
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.
