DevOps as a self-taught developer

Learning software development is not easy, you must figure out everything and mostly by yourself. While Tutorials are fine, they just give you an example and often not a proper one. I'm learning web development for a year now and I can tell you I'm starting over. After learning the basics of PHP and some Laravel by examples and tutorials, I've decided I want to start over, learning to do everything properly and most importantly - to understand what I'm doing. So why did I write DevOps? It is simple - I'm setting everything myself: the local development environments, docker images and containers, test servers in cloud, deploying to production. And overall, everyone is doing the same, until you work in a team with seniors or DevOps to do it for you.
Believe in yourself, you're doing much more than you think you do!
