I am biased but "Engineering DevOps" is an interesting read because of the unique engineering prescriptive approach for "How-to-DevOps" to digital transformations.

What was your main takeaway from the Upskilling 2020 report?

#HybridHumans is the need of digital acceleration and successful adoption !!

E-shaped Hybrid Humans and professionals are now a REALITY !!
Brendan O'Reilly
the shortage of skilled engineers
Jayne Groll
For two years in a row, there is a clear indication across all levels that "human" (soft) skills are equally important to automation and process skills. Culture counts!
Sam Fell
I was interested to see how much importance CI/CD tooling had. More than cloud this year! Apparently "getting things shipped" is more important than "where it is being shipped to" at the moment.
NRDevOpsMY
1) DevOps transformation journey is still very difficult for more than 50%.
2) Finding and attracting skilled people continues to be a challenge in 2020.

The landscape is fluid, and so too must be our learning. Keep Learning! :)
Donna Knapp
It's nice to see the focus moving beyond the technology to understanding the process and people improvements needed to use the technology effectively.
Martyn Coupland
the shortage of skilled engineers is a real shock, especially given the amount of people you see on LinkedIn with DevOps in their title
Xellentro Consulting
My main takeaway was to see that the Process Skills and Knowledge to be of more importance.
Romnick Acabado
Hybrid model of humans and the change from "soft" skills to "human" skills! E-shaped professionals can be developed and must be retained. ;)
Suresh GP
1. E-Shaped DevOps Human (experience and expertise, explora- tion and execution.)
2. Collaboration and cooperation is still the top must-have human skill.
3. DevOps adoption, Agile and SRE have all gained in their percentage for must-have skills.
Garima Bajpai
DevOps, Agile and SRE are #bestbuddies
Brendan O'Reilly
@mrcoups there are many CV's with the word DevOps in there but its the only a word!
jorn does not currently have covid
@samueldfell Touchรฉ. Maybe that inflection point of the infra getting commoditized is showing up here in the "skills I want need" space. :)
Manny Varela
A shout-out to the E-Shape as well.
