The journey of System Administration has changed over time. We have seen the early years of containers (jails), virtualization, and now the rise of containers. Currently plenty of automation tools ease the job of migrating from VMware to the cloud with Terraform, migrating monolithic applications to containers, and the ability to have a disaster recovery plan in the cloud. So, what is next for system administrators? You have probably seen the rise of:
  • Infrastructure Engineer
  • Automation Engineer
  • Site Reliability Engineer
  • Blockchain Infrastructure Engineer
  • AI and ML Infrastructure Engineer
  • Chaos Engineer
  • System Architect
Potential up-and-coming areas to explore include:
  • Quantum Computing
  • Quantum Key Distribution and Cryptography
  • Intuition Engineering
In this keynote I will explore the components that are transferrable across all those disciplines, which system administration skills you should keep sharpened, and which news skills you might want to add to your professional toolbox.
