A quick look at job boards lets you know that IT professionals are in high demand. Among the roles they need to fill are those that require Linux and Amazon Web Services (AWS) skills. Their relevance is reflected in their pay. According to PayScale, those proficient in Linux can earn an average salary of $93,000, and those with excellent AWS skills earn an average of $108,000.
Simply put, equipping yourself with Linux and AWS skills is a wise career move. However, if you have no experience with technology, it would be difficult to break into the industry. Just the technical terminology can be overwhelming. So, how do you start a tech career if you don’t know the basics?

What is Yellow Tail Technology?
Yellow Tail Tech is an edtech company founded in 2014 by Paloma Rivera Vilceus and Jubee Vilceus, both of whom are highly experienced in technology. The company came into existence after its founders saw a lack of tech programs for those who don’t have an IT background.
They realized this and designed courses tailored precisely for complete beginners, allowing them to learn the basics before moving on to more complex topics. At the time of writing, 90 percent of Yellow Tail Tech students have no previous experience in technology.
They are guided through their training by industry-certified instructors who are ready to train them to become Red Hat Certified System Administrators (RHCSA) and Certified AWS Systems Operations Engineers.
Many instructors are alumni of Yellow Tail Tech who once knew nothing about technology. This gives them first-hand insight into the challenges you face when training with Yellow Tail Tech and how to overcome them.
In addition, Yellow Tail Tech’s instructors know the needs of the industry as they now work in top companies. As such, they can provide students with hands-on experience while helping Yellow Tail Tech update its curriculum according to industry trends.
