Jose Vega - Instructor


My name is Jose Vega, I was born and raised four blocks from the beach on Puerto Rico’s beautiful north coast but have spent half of my life in the continental United States. Most of my 28 years of software development experience were focused on the Retail Industry, consulting for clients such as Home Depot, Ulta Cosmetics, Gap, Pep Boys, Luxottica among others. Although I wore many hats during those years, from Developer, Technical Trainer to VP of Engineering, my unofficial title was “El Curandero” (The Healer) due to my knack for finding solutions for my clients.

I’ve always been passionate about teaching and found ways to do so in my professional career while traveling the world. I retired from the software development industry in 2019 and decided to focus my energy on sharing my experiences to help address the digital literacy divide, especially in the adult Spanish-speaking community. I am looking forward to continuing this effort with DWC helping with Digital Literacy, MS Office, and Google Suite. When not teaching, you will find me dancing salsa, improvising recipes in the kitchen, or walking our dog around beautiful Austin, Texas.
