I have 4+ years of experience as a sr. system admin in Unix and Linux. I want to grow my career in dev ops. How I can start by self study?
DevOps is the trending technology now. In simple words DevOps = Development + Operation. It is Automation Technology which automates everything like Code Testing infrastructure workflows etc to improve the productivity and collaboration withing the Organisation. It increases the rate of Quality Software delivery and uses the same environment configuration for building and testing the code. It uses tools to measure the performance of the Application monitor track and record of each and every activity in the process. For a career in DevOps you need to know about several tools like Docker. Puppet. Chef. Vagrant. ordered-list Knowledge of Scripting Languages like Python Powershell Java Script PHP Unix shell and Bash. Databases like SQL My SQL Networking basics and some Cloud Computing concepts including Amazon Web Service and Windows Azure Cloud Service Providers will be beneficial ( As most Organisation are working with Cloud now). And as you mentioned you must be having great knowledge of Linux Unix Ubuntu and Red Hat they will also help you. For Self Study of these Tools and Languages there are many sources like online tutorial PDF and courses. You can download the tools and start learning. All the Best.
How is the DevOps course provided by Edureka?
Hi Edureka and All First of all HAPPY-NEW-YEAR ) lots of wishes to everyone. Well Edureka is well known institute provides training to IT professionals of every level. Well experience of me and one of my colleague is a bit bad in few of the aspects. I am starting with the people who answers to your query related to the training they are really professional and amazing with their work. They do follow up with you will have answers to every question of yours. But once you will get enrolled with them and you find some difficulty in something they they just roam around the bush . means they will not have proper answer of your question. Trainer most important part of training. I am sure you must be agree with me. Now the trainer was not very much thorough with the training topic. He prepared from his side amazingly he delivered it to very well. And when my friend asked a question he got confused in his own prepared topic . I don know what is this. when he (my friend) called them and asked about the trainer they refused to give details of him (not personal details but professional details like experience working status projects). I thought he is just a fresher who has enrolled with Edureka for the training purpose. (I also was a part of the training with my friend) A trainee not able to catch up with the trainer because he is too fast. Here a person is not able to understand a topic and trainer is not willing to help the person with their query. He is just running behind to cover every topic from the training content in given period. One more situation you maye across When you got enrolled with them and after some time you will getting some kind of problem and still you will stuck with the problem with training or something related to Edureka they suddenly came up with so many rules and regulation (i dont know from where) that i or my friend had never informed before when we were enquiring. When they started informing me about the rules i got shocked and hang up on the person. I really got very angry & upset on them . Edureka is really professional institute but i don think this level of professionalism works for them for long time. Because this is not helping us in any way. This helps them only financially. Edureka has best team working. Everywhere you will see good talks about Edureka but what the reality is rarelyes out. I guess this will not hamper their image anyhow but will help you to understand that this also could be your situation and you will be prepared for it properly. I don want anyone to go through this situation. I am sorry Edureka but that was VERY BAD situation i had been through when you were there. Thanks and Regards
Which sites are good for learning Java?
From my experience avoid Youtube and other websites like Newboston tutorial points official docs. Instead take some course on Udemy. If you dont want to pay the price then the same content will be available in freetutorialus (torrent files) but may take time downlaoding. But Java Brains (youtube channel) is an exception. Its a must for JEE Spring Boot Microservices (no core Java tought here). I myself learned from Newboston youtube videos tutorialspoint javapoint and many others. But later understood that most are outdated and unorganized. You may get stuck somewhere after each learning. Summary Core java any Udemy course or OCJP by Kathy Sierra Spring and Hybernate (Java framework and ORM respectively) Java Brains Points 1 and 2 (2 will take 3 months to learn) will fetch a decent job(1k salary off campus for avg fresher). Points 3 and 4 will take 3 months to learn and fetch a better job(1312k). These are for no-prog-knowledge. I had Android knowledge so took only 3.5 months to learn points 234. To get exceptional jobs(334k begining 531lakh rs in 132 yrs) you will have to learn Data Structures and Algorithms (CTCI + Geekforgeeks) Java in depth (Katherine Sierra OCJP book is what I studied) These will take 132 years to learn and practice I believe Update on 27 Dec 218 I am now 1 months into professional software engineering.

1) Selecting the site nScour through the various sites and apps that allow you to create blogs. Also see the amount of traffic each of these sites accumulate. Blogger WordPress and Quora of course are some popular names. 2) Decide a theme nWhether you want to be a fashion blogger travel blogger or just impart some knowledge about to-do stuff select the theme accordingly. 3) Create original content nDon't be 'inspired' or engage in plagiarism. Your audience is smarter than you think. Also it wouldn't help if you got writers chasing your tail about stealing their stuff. 4) Zero errors nMaking typo errors grammatical or English errors is simply unacceptable and very frustrating if repetitive. Remember that people who read blogs are the ones who are voracious readers and such mistakes might make them apprehensive of reading your future articles. 5) . nKeep the blog short and simple. Not many have the patience to read pages about a single article or crack their brains and sit with a dictionary while reading your blog whilst you exhibit your vocabulary skills. People need articles they relate to not something they need to break their heads over. 6) Be punctual nPost blogs on time. Select a proper time interval between two blogs such that it is not too short that people miss out on articles or get bored of reading your stuff daily and at the same time the time interval shouldn't be too long that they get tired waiting. 7) Presentation nFollow the paragraph method. Use numbering and bullets whenever needed. Include pictures videos and don't include too many flashy bright and varied colours that will take the attention of the readers away from the content itself. 8) Surprise nAdd an element of surprise with each blog. A new twist to the everyday routine you follow with your blog. Keep your readers hooked onto the unpredictability your blog offers. 9) Stay Updated nKnow what your target audience wants and stay in touch with the uing trends and events related to the theme in your blog. And finally enjoy the entire process of developing content for your readers researching about topics and reinventing your blog. All the best ! )
What is it like to attend an ASMS (American Society of Mass Spectrometry) conference?
When I first attended in the mid-8s ASMS was almost entirely focussed on instrumentation and on gas phase ion chemistry (what's called fundamentals at the current conferences). Instrumentation is still a major focus today but the scientific topics have shifted to applications particularly biological There's a pretty extensive collection of short courses offered. Many of them are two day starting on Saturday morning but there are some one day courses. The topics range from introductory (LC-MS method basics DMPK GLP instrument theory troubleshooting and maintenance) to intermediate (protein analysis bioinformatics HDX). I've never attended one of the short courses but I hear most of them are quite worthwhile. I know many of the presenters and they're uniformly excellent scientists. If there's a topic that interests you I'd rmend trying them. If you're not going to a short course although the first official sessions of the conference are the tutorials and the opening plenary on Sunday night the conference actually starts on Saturday with the Waters and Agilent users' meetings (Waters all day Agilent in the evening). If you aren't interested in those two then all the other manufacturers have their meetings on Sunday with Thermo and Sciex starting at about 8 AM. The meetings are almost always in separate hotels so attending more than one of the Sunday morning meetings isn't easy. Lots of smallerpanies have their meetings during the later morning or in the afternoon before the tutorials. The opening plenary is often quite interesting and it's followed by a mixer in the poster hall that's definitely worthwhile. There's free beer and food and it's the best time to find the largest fraction of the attendees present in one place and available to talk. The scientific sessions get underway on Monday morning and in recent years there have been eight parallel oral sessions. There are enough talks that you'll generally find that you have conflicts and can't attend everything you'd like to see. Starting on Tuesday IIRC the previous day's talks are available to stream on the ASMS website and remain available until around August so you can catch things you missed. Monday is by far the most crowded day in the oral sessions as all the newer attendees are overdressed and gung ho to see everything. You'll often find that the crowd is spilling out the doors and think you can't get in. Don't let that fool you -- there are almost always seats available. Just make your way past the standees at the back and you'll likely find a seat. Things get much better as the week goes on; noticeably by Tuesday and by Thursday afternoon things are positively calm. There have been around 7+ posters per day in recent years so it's pretty much impossible to just browse. I find it necessary to triage the posters by topic and then by title and only target the ones that sound interesting. I also find the poster hall much too crowded during the hours in the midday when there are no oral sessions and the poster authors are present so I like to check the posters out early in the morning ande back to any authors I want to talk to. The posters are supposed to be up by 73 but as you can imagine lots of them don't make it until much later ) On Monday Tuesday and Wednesday evenings there are topic specific workshops for about 9 minutes after the second oral session finishes. These can be quite interesting and useful but they depend on how good and well organized the chairpeople are and on how much input the audience contributes. If there's a topic that interests you be sure to go. I often find that I have conflicts on at least one night and because the workshops aren't recorded there's no way to resolve the conflicts. Choose wisely ) Also on those nights (after the workshops) the larger manufacturers have hospitality suites that are open to all attendees. They all have free beer and usually wine some have free food and there are often tchotchkes to be had. Like the Monday scientific sessions the Monday hospitality suites are generally a disaster with drunken grad students bent over garbage cans and huge lines for everything. If you aren't looking to feed yourself dinner from the suites my advice is to stay away from the ones with food (it generally runs out midway through the evening anyway). Of the five largest manufacturers Bruker usually has the most entertainment and the strangest gimmick Thermo is usually the most high tech and swankiest Sciex and Agilent are usually the most average and Waters is usually the dullest -- though that makes it the best place to hang out and talk to people. Shimadzu is usually the most reliable place to find food later in the evening. On Thursday night there is a final event. The quality has ranged from fantastic topletely lame. A couple of years ago in Vancouver for example it was nothing but a dinner served in one of the conference center rooms. However last year it was at the Baltimore Aquarium with food and drink stations scattered all over the venue and lots of cool stuff to see. This year is at the St. Louis City Museum but the museum looks like it might be more interesting than it sounds. If you're thinking of going you pretty much have to buy your ticket when you register so I generally get one and show up at the event. I bail if it's lame but stay if it seems worthwhile. Here's a collection of tips distilled from thirty years -the more desirable hotels (close and cheaper) fill fast. The housing website opens in early January and you really want to get on there in the first couple of days. If you don't have a room yet go find one you are at the conference before Sunday afternoon go pick up your badge as early as you can. It's better than it used to be but the lines still get pretty long after 2 or 3 on of manufacturers now have breakfast presentations before the first oral session. You aren't going to get a restaurant breakfast but if you can make do with pastries fruit coffee and juice it's a good way to get a free meal and see more details on what's new this year. Space is often limited so watch for them on thepany 't overdress for any of it. On Monday mornings lots of people are running around in suits and it's a sure way to spot the newbies. Depending on the outside climate I generally wear tee shirt shorts and sandals or jeans and running shoes. If you just can't go there you can absolutely wear a polo and dockers or equivalent for everything -- unless you are a grad student giving an oral presentation in which case you might want to step it up a notch to keep your PI years almost everything in the convention center is way overpriced and of mediocre quality (big surprise). However most years (including this year) the convention center is close to downtown or the business district so there are lots of other places to go. I've never been to St. Louis other than to stop and see the arch once while passing through downtown so I can't make rmendations. Still I'll bet there are lots of better options for lunch than the dreck they probably serve in the poster it easy at the hospitality suites. I think part of the problem is undergrads and really young grad students getting in over their heads at the bar. I've never seen anyone check ID so I suppose if you're underage it's a freaking bonanza. Still think about that oral session that starts at 83 tomorrow morning. If you're interested in collecting tchotchkes it's a good idea to get to the suites as soon as they open and see who's giving out what. Lots of them only have enough supply for an hour or less but they generally have separate stock for each night so you might find something else tomorrow if you don't get today''s a very friendly and collegial vibe amongst the long-time attendees. Most everyone will be happy to talk to you about their work or about yours. If there's someone in particular you want to talk to and they have a poster that's usually a good place to get started. Otherwise email them and they'll likely be glad to set up a time to meet upon a time the best way to get a copy of a poster was to leave your card at the poster and the author would send you a copy. Then for quite a few years the poster itself was available in PDF from the proceedings pages on the ASMS website. Last year I don't think I checked to see if that was still the case but I hope it 's no photography allowed in the oral or poster sessions but every year there are a few jerks who think that doesn't apply to them. Don't be one of the jerks.
