We’ll answer questions like:

  • Is increasing automation and virtualization good or bad for your career?
  • Does abstraction and better tools decrease the need for deep expertise?
  • Does a cloud admin need programming skills?
  • Do you think a cloud admin is a generalist with a little expertise about compute, storage, and networking?
  • Or is a cloud admin an expert in cloud architectures?
  • What are your thoughts on scripting vs. automation and orchestration?
