On June 10 2019 at Cisco Live 2019 San Diego, Cisco rolled out one of the most dramatic changes to Cisco Career Certifications portfolio since the inception of the program going all the way back to 1993. Cisco flipped upside down, just about everything, that you know today about CCNA, CCNP and CCIE written and […]
In this article, I will discuss 5 steps that you can take today to start working your way to a Full Stack Networker or NetDevOps or a Network Automation Engineer.
In this article, I will describe the process of continuous integration (CI) and how you can commit your first NetDevOps config-as-code build using Gitea. It is also my hope that this inspires readers to really commit to transforming their career to network automation engineer or NetDevOps given the enormous potential.
In this article, I am going to walk you through an end to end NetDevOps pipeline and the function that each tool performs within the pipeline. First let me revisit our NetDevOps toolchain which if you recall consists of four main stages of Config Creation, Building, Testing and Deploying.
As we know, CLI was created for humans and is optimized for manual interaction where you configure one device at a time. Given the nature of manual modification, it is obviously prone to error and tasks are NOT easily repeatable. Future network operations with NetDevOps toolchain would allow us to apply version controls to all configuration changes and where it is the single source of truth.
Building upon our DevOps knowledge base, in this article, I will go over a practical version of a complete NetDevOps delivery pipeline.
In this post, I will discuss good old DevOps and how it compares with NetDevOps along with my take on why network programmability is NOT NetDevOps.
Before we go into what, where and how to get started, let me address one crucial topic which is the proverbial elephant in the room, i.e. job security. I can’t tell you how many times have I heard that network automation will take my network admin or network engineering job away?
There are at least three career benefits to learning Linux as far as networking configuration and troubleshooting are concerned.
Before, we get into why, what and how FullStack networker, let me a do a quick introduction as to who we are and what we stand for. We’re a bunch of industry veterans out of silicon valley (California) with corporate backgrounds from Cisco, Huawei, Apple (and a few more). Most of us started our […]
The network automation market size is projected to grow from $3 billion in 2020 to about $9 billion over the next five years, so that’s about 25% compounded annual growth over that period. North America has the highest market share in the network automation market due to the early adoption of technology and the presence […]
Network automation is the biggest trend in networking today and picking up even more steam as networking infrastructure becomes virtualized, software-defined, and cloud-based. If there was ever another driver needed for network automation to kick in high gear, employees working remotely due to coronavirus is it. As per Gartner, by 2023, 60% of data center […]
In the last several articles, I made a case that as a network engineer, when you look back at 2020 say in three years, you will realize that it was the year that kicked the network automation into high gear. It is super critical to note that network automation isn’t about using network programmability or […]
In this article, I am going to cover every bit of detail that you need to get started, to prepare and pass the Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices Using Cisco Platforms or the Cisco DEVOPS 300-910 exam. You can take the DEVOPS exam and the DEVCOR 350-901 exam to earn your DevNet Professional certification. If […]
