This is the time of DevOps in software industry and DevOps uses different different languages for deployment automation and for software development. This is the reason if you are a DevOps professional and want to be succeed in DevOps role than command on scripting languages is must. But, one can not be a master of all. Right? Therefore, In this article I am going to share a list of top 10 scripting languages which will be useful for your DevOps journey.
 
But before that let's have a quick look on Scripting language.
 
Scripting languages are programming languages that communicate and integrate with other programming languages. In other words, scripting languages controlls interactive programs operations by giving it sequence of work to execute by one command at a time.
 
Now, let's look on to the list of top 10 scripting languages
 
1. Microsoft PowerShell

Cloud computing is one of the trends which is going in IT industry these days. The traditional way of building IT environment is now shifting towards the cloud computing. This is the reason number of cloud service provider is increasing day by day and it becomes a tough task to select good one amongst them. So, In this article I am going to tell you about the top 10 cloud platforms for cloud services.
 
But, before that let's have a quick overview on Cloud platforms?
 
Cloud platforms are platforms that allow developers to write applications that runs in the cloud and allows users to access data, services and applications, storage over the internet and allow them to work from anywhere on it.
 
If we look on to the benefits of cloud platforms than these are the following benefits
 
1. Reducing Costs - Cloud platforms eliminating the needs of own hardware, software, licenses, servers and other infrastructures which you needs to build IT working environment which ultimately reduce your costs.
 
2. Productivity - As you don't need your hardware, software and on-premises servers which means you don't need to hire experts to maintain them which helps you in both ways first on cost savings and second the professionals can focus on other things.
 
3. Availability - Cloud platforms allows you to access from anywhere, on any device 24/7
 
4. Scalability - The best thing about cloud platforms is that you don't need to worry about high traffic or sudden growth on traffic because cloud platforms automatically provide as many servers as required in such situations.
 
5. Affordability - As we mentioned above about scalability of cloud platforms where service providers allow server as per situations but it's not cost you much because it;s not compelling you to pay for unnecessary usage of servers by automatically reduces the numbers of servers when traffic go down. You need to pay only for that sort of time when service provider allocates extra servers.
 
6. Migration - Cloud platforms also allow users to migrate completely from one service provider to another without losing your data.
 
 
Now, let's check on to the service models of cloud platforms
 
There are three models of cloud platforms

1. SaaS - Software as a service (Saas) applications runs completely in the cloud. It enables delivery of applications over the cloud, it means you don't need to buy, install and maintain own software. Software is managed from a central location and Just pay for what you used.
 
 
2. PaaS -  Platform as a service (PaaS) This kind of cloud platforms provides you set of tools and services designed to make coding and deploying those applications quick and efficient. Means to say you can develop, runs and manage applications on the cloud.
 
3. IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) It is a kind of service where you get access to virtualized computer resources over the internet. You can get complete infrastructure solutions like hardware, software, servers, storage and other things from third party.
 
Now, lets move on to the next section.
