Moving into the DevOps stream of work within Technology enabled me to gain various skills but also understand the role of all others within the development lifecycle. I moved into DevOps and Agile work because every day, I would find myself doing something different or learning something brand new.
Sometimes I would be responsible for overseeing the DevOps scope on projects and managing and delegating work to the rest of the DevOps team. I often have opportunities to work on various cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM Bluemix Cloud.
I think it's important to have fun while you're at work and to constantly be interested, which I get from working with different groups and on multiple projects - there's rarely a quiet day in the office!
Also, asking questions and choosing your own mentors are key players in the progression of your career.
Fortunately for me, with the help of my mentors, my team and I were able to deliver from our planning phases, through to go-live and maintenance. My role as a project manager also involved hands-on work such as some automation, defect fixes and integration to other Accenture services. I also implemented the release management process of the project and managed production deployments. The role got me nominated for Apprentice of the Year in 2016 and gave me a lot of exposure to the Digital/Technology Community in Accenture.
