I have learned many new things in day to day life, and when I started working as a professional developer, then I had to learn different things. I want to talk about a server management system that I learnt when my boss requested me. The reason why I started learning this skill is that my company had a hard time finding the right server administrator. Therefore, I shoulder the responsibility, and my boss purchased a cloud service, where I can try and learn. I had a hard time finding where I start. Because in the market there are numerous operating systems. I faced many difficulties because I don’t have the basic knowledge of how the websites are running on the server side and what are the different software that I need to install.
Moreover, the company don’t have any senior staff to whom I could discuss issues that I was facing at that time. I read numerous the blog posts that were posted by the different developers to learn which software and operating system are best for running websites. Another thing, I had to deal with was the security of the website. It is the primary concern for the running site because the hackers are always onto the sites to hack. It’s quite essential to deliver a full-fledged service to clients, and at last, after the hard work of 20 days, I manage to set up all things.
After learning this skill, I was able to find work on some freelancing websites, and I also earned some money while on bidding online projects, and that is the practical skill that I have learnt during my work which is beneficial for me.
