Webinar details

It's not uncommon to hear how the networks of today are slow to change, and not "up to speed" with the other technology disciplines. Some go so far as to say that the networking industry is decades behind other disciplines like server virtualization, and are not able to respond as quickly to the ever-changing needs of the business.

Software-defined networking has promised to change this paradigm, with the introduction of concepts like controllers, software abstractions, overlays, and open programmability. These were all made for the purpose of making networks more consumable and agile, to more properly address the needs of the business. However, for many organizations, SDN represents quite a steep adoption curve, and may not be viewed as a realistic short-term plan for their environment.

In this webinar, we will discuss some fundamental concepts and ideas that network engineers can use today, to start "ramping up" the software-defined path. We will address some of the biggest questions on many network professionals' minds - questions like "Do I need to be a programmer to keep my job?", or "There is so much to learn - where do I start?". If you're a network engineer, and interested in hearing about some realistic skillsets you can begin building today, this webinar is for you.

About the webinar

This is a very interesting area for persons like myself, strong network engineers who don't have a lot of experience in doing network automation the 'right' way. Would be interested in more webinars along this theme and feel it would be beneficial.

Short version- debugging expect scripts gets old after a while, looking for a new way of doing things.
