This is another very important thing for DevOps gurus and champion, i.e. to set up a pipeline for continuous integration and delivery. There are a lot of tools in the CI/CD area e.g. Jenkins, TeamCity, Drone etc.

I strongly recommend learning at least Jenkins, as it’s the most widely used and probably the most mature CI/CD tool in the market.

Apart from setup and deployment, monitoring is another important aspect of DevOps and that’s why it’s important for a DevOps engineer to learn about Infrastructure and application monitoring.

There are a lot of tools in this space e.g. Nagios, Icing, Datadog, Zabbix, Monit, AppDynanic, New Relic etc.

You can choose some of them depending on which one is used in your company like AppDynamic and Nagios.

Cloud is the next big thing and sooner or later you have to move your application to the cloud, hence it’s important for a DevOps engineer to at least know about some of the popular Cloud Providers and their basics.

While AWS is clearly the leader in the cloud it’s not alone, Google Cloud and Azure are slowly catching up and then we have some other players like Heroku, Cloud Foundry, and Digital Ocean.
