Dev Ops Full Stack Cloud is the new go to at the moment with AWS being adopted by pretty much every Enterprise or startup IT company.

I'm looking to learn CI/CD with Puppet, Chef, or Ansible

Also Kubernetes.

Salary for a Dev Ops Engineer is easily 6figs

$120k+
Good looking out. Quick question for anyone really. I just started studying I finished a basic intro course ( just basic computer sh*t barely )
As a beginner can I go ahead and take a course solely on this and be able to understand what’s going on.
If so any courses you recommend. I found a couple on Udemy for cheap.

Edit. Also thinking about python or c+ to begin


Thanks in advance

Reading my post, and everyone that is going through the grind and the one's that's in it. Wants me to get my whole entire sh*t together because this is a high demand market. Revature looking for American citizens on what I was reading through, and I notice they've wanted people from India. I would like for you guys to check out TEKsystems from their website and LinkedIn page just like I am.

Great post from the thread starter where it stays bumped.

Decided to go back to school for IT and currently working on getting my A+ cert.

usually not too hard getting thru the door with these IT staffing agencies. Usually they give u some sort of pre screen interview. Get thru that and they will start giving u some positions they need filled. Choose one u like and they will submit your resume and you might get another interview for the actual position with a hiring manager from company. Its a good way to get foot in the door. One thing I would say is look up multiple IT staffing agencies in your area. They are often all placing people in the same positions and same companies, but they might have different pay rates.

Yessir,

There's so many angles and so many disciplines. The cool thing about it is fewer and fewer employers care about your educational level. They want to see experience and ensure you can do the job.

Hop on in bro, soon as you get your first 6 months under your belt at a job you are free to move around and make more money elsewhere raising your rate.

Been getting some contacts hitting, and just polishing my skill off and realizing this is like working around my HTML. Soon, I will be dusting off my HTML CSS skill set, and putting up a GitHub profile once I'm more fluid.



This may be a fun project that I may want to do.

Somethign easy to get into that hasn't blown up completely yet is Privacy. They cannot find enough people in this field. GDPR and CCPA are just the beginning. There are a bunch of other states that are trying to put their own framework around it. And the field is so young and dynamic you won't be competing with people who have done it for 20+ years.

What if you have no experience?

What can you put on your resume to even get a staffing agency to look at you?

Coming out of school I had project work and classes I had taken on my resume. Or any kind of internship u may have done. Look/ask for entry level jobs. There are plenty of places that hire thru these agencies looking for young ppl right outta school. The staffing agency will see that u are fresh outta school. They will work with you.

i would just go in the office and talk with them. See what skill sets are in demand. Tell them your background and what you did do while in school. The thing with these staffing agencies, they want to find you a job bc thats money for them. So it wouldnt hurt to just go in there and see whats up.

Been thinking of getting into Python for a while now but I'm honestly a bit worried about the math background I feel is needed. For anybody using python on the regular, do you find yourself needing the math/statistical background heavy or do you think it's something you can honestly develop as you continue to learn? I'd mainly envision learning Python and entering into the Data Analytics/Data Science field, but I know its applicable in a bunch of different fields.

Just started working on my PMP as an entry point into the tech field.

I'm skilled at digital marketing, copywriting, and brand development; looking to carry over all the projects I've managed into a new portfolio with the focus being on PM in general now, less specific so I can slide into tech.
