Meet Jose 👋

Hi, my name is Jose, and I come from Ecuador 🇪🇨

Jose DevOps Bootcamp Graduate - LinkedIn Profile

I’m a young DevOps Engineer, and in my job I love dealing with new technologies, automations, and optimizations on a daily basis. It’s a lot of fun.

And in terms of payment, it’s amazing: My DevOps salary is 233% more than what I used to earn at my previous job, which of course is besides of being fulfilled at work another important aspect and increased the quality of my life 🙂


What did you do before DevOps? 👀

In my very first job I worked as a developer using Java, PL/SQL and bash scripting.

With time, I became interested in Linux OS 🐧 and infrastructure things, so I ended up working as a Sys Admin in a big company.

Why did you decide to switch to DevOps? Which aspect do you like most about it?

To be honest, I felt stagnant with low payment so I researched new roles in IT and I found DevOps.

DevOps - Intersection of Development and Operations

It’s an exciting role that combined the two worlds which I liked a lot: "Software Development" & "Operations".

In fact, DevOps promised to be dynamic, with new technologies, optimizations, automations, etc.

“And because I tend to get bored easily, the excitement of DevOps seemed to be a perfect fit for me. In addition, I realized that DevOps Engineering was very well-paid.
As I love challenges, I decided to learn DevOps and do whatever it takes 💪"

How did you decide to take the DevOps Bootcamp? Where did you hear about it?

I found the video "What is DevOps" by TechWorld with Nana, and I was surprised about how easily and clearly Nana explained all concepts on YouTube, although I’m not a native English speaker.

So I had no doubts that her DevOps Bootcamp would be just as good. I wanted a complete course that gave me the big picture, not isolated courses without connection. And the DevOps Bootcamp was a perfect match for my needs ✅

“Also the DevOps Bootcamp offered a community of students, and Support with learning, and that was very important to me.”

The main obstacle to me was the price but I considered it as an investment in my career, and it definitely paid off!

I didn't try any other schools, just TechWorld with Nana’s DevOps Bootcamp and it was clearly everything I needed to make the career switch.

What was the best part of the DevOps Bootcamp? 💎

I really liked the quality of labs (hands-on projects) and continuity between the lessons.

It was very easy for me to completely understand the classes. I was able to make a profile in Github with all my knowledge.

So, how did you get your new job, how did you prepare?  💪 💼

With my Github profile, my DevOps badge as a “Certified DevOps Practitioner” and all the new knowledge, I updated my LinkedIn profile and curriculum, and I started applying for DevOps positions. ✍️

I was invited to many interesting interviews, and eventually I got a new job within only 1 year of enrolling in the DevOps Bootcamp! It went so fast! 🤠

Is there a big difference in your salary? 💸

I got a 233% increase compared to my previous salary.

This actually confirmed what my research showed that DevOps is very demanded. It seems there is a lack of people, who can implement DevOps properly and companies are therefore willing to pay premium to get skilled people :)

What do you recommend to new DevOps-aspirants? 💡

Be patient, don't skip any lecture of the Bootcamp, because you think "you already know that".

Do all the hands-on projects to get real practice, and very importantly ‼️:

Create a Github profile based on what you’ve learned 📒

I can assure you, with the DevOps Bootcamp you have a complete program that prepares you for the majority of DevOps jobs published out there 😊  Good luck!

I just want to say THANK YOU for the hard work in order to deliver a high quality education, I'm very proud of being part of TechWorld with Nana.
