Yeni Capote Diaz

Samsung SDS
DevOps Engineer
In my past life I was a nanny. I found my love for programming quite accidentally. I started looking at online courses and found that the only option I could see myself doing was programming, so I took a couple classes. I wanted more, and then I discovered Ada Developer's Academy. I took a chance and applied to this competitive year-long program. I spent the first six months learning web development. I went on to intern at Samsung SDS as a DevOps Engineer for five months, where I am currently working and continuing to learn the wonders of Kubernetes, one day at a time.

In my free time I enjoy hiking the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my dog, binge watching Netflix, cooking delicious vegan food, and taking too many pictures of my cats.

I love giving back to the communities that have helped me be where I am today. I am a mentor and tutor at Ada, a co-organizer of the Women Who Go Seattle chapter, and open-source contributor.
