The Basics

  • Understand the why before the how: Learn why the shift to cloud matters and how it is unlocking new opportunities for innovation. “Cloud shift is not just about cloud. As organizations pursue new IT architectures and operating philosophies, they put in place a foundation for new opportunities in digital business, including next-generation IT solutions such as the Internet of Things (IoT),” says Ed Anderson, Distinguished Vice President Analyst, Gartner.
  • Develop transferable skills with open-source technologies: Open-source technologies such as Kubernetes and TensorFlow are vendor-neutral. Proficiency in open-source technologies enables you to work effectively in multi-cloud or hybrid-cloud environments.
  • Get certified: Training (videos, hands-on labs) gives you the knowledge and hands-on experience to work with cloud technologies. Certification validates your technical expertise and gives you industry recognition.
  • Soft-skills are important: Whether you are in a technical or non-technical role, presentation skills, strong written and verbal communication skills, and leadership skills are key to standing apart in a crowded field of candidates. Get involved in your community by organizing student clubs on campus and delivering presentations in community meetups to polish soft-skills.
  • Stay curious: Stay engaged by following technical blogs, conferences, and community meetups. Conference videos such as those of Google Cloud Next are available on YouTube. Invest a couple of hours every week to learn something new. Qwiklabs has some great labs that you can finish in under an hour.
