I am looking to foray into Devops for the first time. I am skilled in R programming, Data science and machine learning. What tool would be recommended and where to learn it from? I don't mind if the coding part is higher.

I’m a fairly competitive applicant, but maybe not in the group of consultants applying. Would it make sense to leave consulting and go to a place where less competitive applicants are so I stand out more?
