Ernesto Vargas

Ernesto is a Software Architect and DevOps engineer at Gorilla Logic. Ernesto is an expert in his field and has an incredible 17+ years of experience in SysAdmin, DevOps, Software Development, DBA, and Security and 25+ years in IT. 

Where’s your hometown?I am from a rural town called San Antonio de Escazu, with lots of Costa Rican traditions, old style farmers and cows in the streets.  

Favorite place you’ve traveled to?Definitely  London, England. It is my favorite place outside of my hometown in Costa Rica.

How many years have you worked in your field?I started playing with a PC at 12 on an IBM AT computer. My first computer related work was at 15 on a Bulletin Board System with modems and banks of 5 1/4 disks. My first full-time job at 18 was as Customer Support for Acer America. So, yes, I have 25+ years of experience. 

Best childhood memory?Riding BMX bikes and making race tracks with jumps and…whoops…

Best advice when meeting with a client? – Research, prepare and practice before any meeting with clients. Going in blind is a call for a disaster.

What qualities make someone successful in the tech world?Passion, teamwork, and innovation.
