Wanted to document what I’m learning and doing for Cloud/DevOps, plus share resources I’m using. I used these 2 DevOps roadmaps from Tech With Nana and DevOps Journey to come up with this study guide/personal roadmap for Cloud/DevOps Engineers.

I will try keep this table updated, but make sure to check out this YouTube playlist just in case.

(Note: the last 3 rows are optional but good to know.)
