Just kidding. :)
Who am I? Just a dude.
Why am I starting this post? I have been involved in network engineering for the last 12 years. Most of that time I spent in operations, keeping the lights on for large scale networks. Back then Cisco was synonymous to the term networking, and you live by knowing the best and most about Cisco commands and syntax. CCIE was something that almost all network engineers pursuit or hope one day to achieve. That is what I spent most of time learning in trying to become better at my job.
But things have gradually shifted to a more vendor neutral world in the last few years, as I work on larger and larger networks, it become obvious that Cisco is not the best-of-breed in many of the verticals. Also as the size of the network I managed grow, it became obvious that there has to be a more vendor-neutral way to manage the network.
That is when I discovered Python!
I believe Python is the best tool for the job, and this is the blog where I hope to provide proof to that statement. Hopefully you will find the posts and tips useful.
Lets get started....
