Session: Upskilling DevOps
There is a well recognized IT skills gap today that is impacting the speed of transformation for both organizations and individuals. Enterprises want to hire and retain T-shaped professionals who are multi-skilled across a range of disciplines. People want to expand their skills portfolios to support their career goals. But which skills are considered essential and how do you know?
In 2018, the DevOps Institute fielded the Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Survey with responses by 1600 individuals from various geographies, company sizes and roles. The results were quite deep and insightful.
This session by Jayne Groll, CEO of the DevOps Institute will provide an overview of the key findings of the report including a breakdown of the specific skills that were considered "must have" , "nice to have" and "not important" across Process, Functional, Technical and Soft Skill Categories. The presentation will also include a look at respondents' DevOps adoption, topologies, hiring plans and talent challenges.
