You certainly do not need a degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering. What you will need to get started is a few basic skills and knowledge of various Operating Systems such as Windows, Linux, etc. While a degree in IT is advantageous, of course, we have thousands of members who are self-taught or have degrees in fields completely unrelated to IT.
Here are some common misconceptions about cloud computing. Cloud computing does not require you to be:
1. A professional programming/coding expert (IT skills are helpful, though)
- Programmer ≠ Coding expert: a basic understanding of coding principles is all you need to get started.
2. An IT Graduate/Professional: cloud computing is rapidly becoming a technology used in all global industries.
3. A techie (technical person) or developer: anyone can learn cloud computing if you study and practice.
