The days of IT specialists are over, and a new breed is appearing. Call them generalists or call them full stack engineers, but in order to compete in an IT economy increasingly driven by the public cloud and new technologies like containers, IT specialists are going to have to branch out and acquire new skills. They're going to need to move "up the stack," being more familiar with concepts from software development, applications, automation, DevOps, and infrastructure. In this session, we'll explore the idea of a "full stack engineer" and talk about some practical steps toward starting your own full stack journey.
