I would like to move “closer to the metal” or “down the tech stack” leading to management and teaching to end my career.
|Title||Skills To Concentrate On|
|Cloud Operations Engineer or Software Engineer for Ops||Kubernetes|
|Site Reliability Engineer||Python, CPython|
|Linux Cloud Kernel Engineer||Linux kernel internals|
|Linux Kernel or Embedded Systems Engineer||C|
|Director of “DevOps” Engineering||Managing humans|
|Professor of Computer Science||Teaching|
Most of those jobs are taken from Canonical as example.
Additional learn plan found here.
Another way to communicate “moving away from observing infrastructure as a career”:
– Finish my Flask application I am writing for a non-for-profit
– Learn more about Python
– Learn about the inner workings of CPython
– Learn more C syntax
– Dive in to the Linux kernel, especially in the context of Embedded Systems and ARM Development (I have a book called Making Embedded Systems)
