Our respondents identified the top three skill areas for DevOps staff:
- Coding or scripting
- Process re-engineering
- Communicating and collaborating with others
These skills all point to a growing recognition that software isn’t written in the old way anymore. Where software used to be written from scratch in a highly complex and lengthy process, creating new products is now often a matter of choosing open source components and stitching them together with code. The complexity of today’s software lies less in the authoring, and more in ensuring that the new software will work across a diverse set of operating systems and platforms right away. Likewise, testing and deployment are now done much more frequently. That is, they can be more frequent — if developers communicate early and regularly with the operations team, and if ops people bring their knowledge of the production environment to design of testing and staging environments.
DevOps engineers are a pretty elite group, oftenly described as the “Special Forces” in an organization.
