Hello All:)


#1

Hello all! I’m grunge94 and I am a Linux newb. I’ve fiddled around with Ubuntu in the past but I haven’t done much with it. Currently I am in a transitioning stage wanting to pursue a career in IT, however I don’t exactly know what I want to pursue in this field. If anyone here is in the IT field I would love to hear about your occupation and experiences!

About development, it would be the fact that you build things with only basics things, really similar with Legos actually. Plus, it can be a nice headache from times to times, it’s most of the time really satisfying to create and accomplish things.
About networks, it’s more related with the fact that it requires a whole lot of knowledge to fix situations, it doesn’t seems as repeating as with Dev stuff, and it makes you look like a wizard when you speak about that with other people ^^


#16

Interesting. How much do you know about Devops?


#17

Not much actually, as far as I know, it aims to rejoin devs and maintainers to help building application and help with their integration in prod.
But, as project leader, it’s not what I wanna do (or at least yet), it would be more a continuing of a carrier you know.
But I’ll eventually find out, one way or another
