As of today I am no longer a Software Engineer. I am now a DevOps Engineer 🥳🥳🥳

    Congrats!

    I'm interested in how you made the move.

    @rantsauce I replied on LinkedIn to every in-mail and applied to as many jobs as possible. Eventually I got the job through a staffing agency. It meant spending every hour of free time on the phone speaking to recruiters but it paid off.

    It's okay to secretly be both i think! 🙂 But congrats on your new position 😁

    @catgirldev congratulations.

    Job hunt, especially switching a profile, can be extremely tedious and a draining task.

    How much time did it take for you?

    My current switch, even though not a profile switch, took me more than 6 months.

    @Floydimus I started maybe late March early April. About a month.

    @catgirldev That's really quick.

    What's the difference?

    Not sure about that being an upgrade. But you seem to see it as such, so:

    Congratulations!

    Wishing you the robust CI/CD pipelines and clear logs.

    I've done both at the same time. It's nice to split responsibilities but make sure they know how it's going to be deployed. Otherwise they'll write it one way and you'll have to hack it to work.

    @iiii to me a devops is basically a software engineer with a heavy set of skills in system administration. You need to understand both the programming side of things as well as how they can integrate with a system. Sprinkle CI/DI on top of it and the orchestration of the entire thing and voila! You get yourself a nice paycheck without having to be doing much coding really.

    I want a similar move to this, not gonna lie

    Now instead of getting paid to be annoyed at your own computer, you get paid to be annoyed at other people's computers!

    @AleCx04 I do wish that was somehow represented in the paycheck… alas, at least for me, that’s not the case.

    @100110111 sorry to hear that homie :( where are you at? here in the States it is a usually well paid career

    @AleCx04 so a dev whi also has sysadmin responsibilities? Isn't that too much for one position?
  • 2
    @iiii not really since they just need the knowledge, they just apply it differently, i.e they are not expected to develop anything other than proper CI/DI pipelines and to know how to orchestrate said pipelines, they DO need to know what developers are doing, but are not expected or required to develop stuff. I have a couple of friends that work as devops engineers, they fucking love it and constantly tell me to learn the trade and jump over since they hate watching me stressing the fuck out over development bullshit.

    @AleCx04 in my case I think it’s just because of the tiny team size, and the fact I’ve grown professionally faster than the ladders allow, leading to me having to take up more responsibilities quicker than expected.

    @AleCx04 so... Just sysadmins who theoretically know what development is
  • 3
    @iiii bingo! basically just that. but getting paid the two items combined. trust me man, I would not want to work in it unless I absolutely knew that it would be that much less of a hassle.

    I love development, but different teams can make it so much more painful.
  • 2
    @AleCx04 then why is it misleadingly called DevOps instead of CI/CD admin? Buzzword?
  • 3
    @iiii based on my experience, yes. Maybe someone else in here can add more to it. But to me it is a buzzword
