After almost two years working as a Linux Sysadmin, I have found out that every developer needs a Sysadmin.

    Yep. I don't mind doing things myself but I wouldn't be as effective without my CTO/sysadmin handling the infrastructure. No time for both if you want to do either of them effectively.

    I agree, and I have heard some devs arguing that sysadmins will be exint in a few years because devops will take over lol

    I would think that us sysadmins will simply would get more into devops if this would happen, the infrastructure still needs to be maintained by professionals. I am having a good relationship to devs I am supporting and we are relying on each other and communicate a lot. None of them want take care about it additionally to their normal workload.

    ..."Kids these days"...

    I'm the developer, sysadmin, helpdesk, and everything in-between where I work. Wish I could focus just on programming...

    In fact, I think my boss read my mind. He's letting me interview people to take over my sysadmin/helpdesk roles so I can just code :)

    Anyone need a job in the Los Angeles area? ^_^

    If you have your infrastructure in AWS and use containers/kubernetes you dont need a sysadmin only devops 😀

    And if you work at AWS you realize you will need Sysadmins to provide the infrastructure so the devops can click and play :) Same as saying AI or machine learning will replace developers at a given time, will simply not happen :) Old boring flame war :)

    @hugh-mungus true but that's true for any server you rent. Even bare metal old school servers are the same. Unless you own the hardware it's not your computer.

    @Linux but but abuse department of AWS is crap != AWS is crap. Or is it?

    I don't quite follow the logic here.

    PS: I'm not an AWS fanboy or anything. I don't even use it. Was just curious.

    @marcom why? You use cloudformation it is infrastructure as code. That is the almost the hole point that you do infrastructure by code. No Sysadmins needed.

    @Linux yes because it makes so you sysadmins is not needed😂

    Companies that want to waste money AWS, Google Cloud, Azure and so on can do so. The aws deployments I have seen is not good.

    Also, who are managing the IPS? It is a full time job only that.

    @Linux there is a lot of services in AWS that give you insight what going on in a IPS/IDS perspective, but yes we have a team responsible for the security.

    @nighter, I know AWS, you missed my point. I just said you will always need Sysadmins as whatever your infrastructure as code is running on, needs to be managed as well :) Physical data centers do not disappear in the cloud :)
