Can someone explain deployment strategy in terms of a develper?

As a developer, what part do we play in the deployment strategy?
When it is higher level, what part do we play?
When it is lower level what part do we play?

There is no deployment strategy,  I depends on components volume which you are trying to deploy.

You can use CICD for deploying components to higher instances.  Below are list and different ways to deploy components.
  • Change Sets
  • Eclipse with Force.com IDE ( Deprecated)
  • Force.com Migration Tool – ANT/Java based
  • Salesforce Package
  • VSCode Salesforce Extension Pack
  • Salesforce Code Builder
Check below considerations of deployment.

You can also check on Appexchange and there are multiple pre-built tools for deployment.
