Join Lynn Langit for an in-depth discussion in this video Dev to..., part of Cloud Computing Career Paths and Certifications: First Steps.
- [Instructor] The next mapping that we're going to look at is for a developer or a programmer. So, if you are currently working as a developer, application developer or programmer, or a database administrator, here are some cloud careers for you. For developers, I see them become cloud application developers, so they're just building and deploying their applications on to one of the public clouds. They also can specialize in cloud, mobile, or internet of things, or device IoT application development.
That's a particularly hot area. Developers and DBAs are often involved in the building of enterprise-level cloud data pipelines, which involve use of multiple types of databases, which can be relational, no sequel, Hadoop, or the newer data lakes. Developers and DBAs are sometimes also involved in working with or becoming cloud data scientists. I've seen several DBAs who are really interested in, or had actually a background in, statistics, that when they made a career move from managing databases on-premise to building data pipelines and doing data science, or predictive analytics against them, were just really happy with the career move.
So it's something that I've seen happen quite a few times for enterprise DBAs and it's been neat to see people be excited about this new shift in their job.
