If nobody can really say they’ve been doing DevOps for years what qualifications can employers look for?

Career Relevance in the DevOps Age

What are some of the titles you can look for if you want to “do” DevOps?

If nobody can really say they’ve “been doing DevOps for years” what qualifications can employers look for?

Are developers really suited to understand the operational needs and goals of the business, as some experts recommend?

With DevOps now "eating the world", as Intellyx principal analyst Jason Bloomberg described in a recent Forbes article, a number of companies are beginning their own DevOps initiatives, and are now looking for "DevOps engineers" to help them get off the ground.

This likely isn't a title you currently possess, and if you can't claim years of DevOps mastery on your resume, how can you stand out to organizations looking for the best and brightest in a growing field thatmany are still trying to define?

Jason will share his views on how to build and maintain "Career Relevance in the DevOps Age" in a webinar on Tuesday, May 12th, that we are so excited to present.

Joining Jason will be Skytap VP of Operations Paul Farrall who has his own experiences to share, including how "cultural misunderstandings and lack of trust between development and operations organizations" is the recipe for a DevOps disaster.

Join us on Tuesday, May 12th at 11:00AM Pacific/2:00PM Eastern, as we share a few paths IT leaders and technical experts are taking to remain in high-demand during a shift in the expectations for developers and operations professionals to possess.

Aliza Earnshaw at Puppet Labs wrote back in 2013, "There's no formal career track for becoming a DevOps engineer" and while that is still largely true today, you may be surprised to find out that your technical skills are no longer your most sought after quality.

Register now for "Career Relevance in the DevOps Age" and stick around for the live Q&A following the webinar!
