In the last two weeks, I’ve been opportune to do some DevOps related tasks at work. Setting up an extensive Nginx server on Digital Ocean, hosting a Laravel application, Setting up MySql, hosting some internal APIs and creating reverse proxy servers for some of these APIs.
I also got to learn about the main infrastructure used at work and how it’s managed (Terraform & Ansible) with some really complex AWS tools 😪.
For someone who’s closest to DevOps before now was with shared hosting and writing some few Cron jobs, I was somewhat overwhelmed.
I decided to become a DevOps Engineer during the week and would be investing my time and resources regularly to achieve this. Here’s a link to the plan I’d be following.
I’ll make sure to document my progress and write about everything I learn.
