Learning DevOps

The Last Two Weeks

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.

An Epiphany

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.
