I have been using
Pulumi
for more than
7 - 8 months
now. Using this tools I was able to build infrastructures for more than
5 projects
and all of those had different level of complexity. Mostly services used: AWS ECS Fargate, S3, Lambda, SNS, SQS, VPC, S3, CloudFront, Secret Manager and a lot more. The reason for choosing
Pulumi
was it's an all in 1 tool unlike AWS CDK/CloudFormation and Terraform. No doubt it's amazing and so much ease but just 1 big problem in terms of career. I'm living in a third world country Pakistan and here only Terraform is only known to a few big companies. I can't even find a single big company who are using
Pulumi
so it's a big loss for us in terms of career as we can neither find someone who has experience nor we can find job it's really depressing. Now if I have to make a switch I need to learn Terraform which I don't like it's like going back to 1990s. Please some help is needed here. The pulumi community can make a job portal specific to their experts

At least here in the US, it's a little bit about the specific technologies and a lot more about skills. So my suggestion would be to tailor your resume/cv/etc to match what companies expect--talk about Infrastructure as Code or just Cloud Management instead of specifically Pulumi

Yes I’ve seen it but the last activity is of 2023 🙂
@hundreds-gpu-71155 you’re right but unfortunately like I mentioned I live in 3rd world country 🙂 yes I wasn’t supposed to work on the latest tech here as companies here hardly use IAC and even if they do they’re just a few. But even in US the Pulumi is not that much in. They prefer Terraform I guess or Cloudformation/AWS CDK. So for most US based companies I’m not even eligible as I’m not a US citizen so our chances of getting my next job where I want to continue working in Pulumi seems not possible. Even though I love the technology I’ve done so much automation that building infrastructure for new projects is not more than a day of work and each new stack takes around 1 to 2 hours. I was able to use Pulumi as in my current company I have the authority to decide the technology stack but who knows whether in next company I would be making those decisions. Anyway thanks for your help
