Mid Season Check-within with NetDevOps Live!
We have been halfway through Season 3 of NetDevOps Live! (alright, somewhat over halfway through) and it’s already been everything I got hoped it will be.
We began super strong with the network automation preferred in Ansible. It had been wonderful having to be able to consult with both Andrius and Sean about what’s occurred recently with Ansible for networking, and what’s to arrive 2.10. I for just one understand the complete “selection” thing far better. In the event that you missed us live, or simply wanna revisit it, it is possible to catch the episode on-requirement anytime you need.
In Episode 2 we went to fundamentals of most things programmability with a dive into git and GitLab (no I didn’t misspell GitHub ). As a former Cisco guy, Brad understands what must be done to dive into automation since a system engineer, and really helped highlight the significance of good source manage, along with how GitLab is a great option for each team searching for a program code and collaboration tool.
Certainly Batfish gets the coolest logo because of this season, but there’s a lot more to this excellent system validation and health device from Intentionet. Samir was kind sufficient to become listed on me for Episode 3 and discuss the problem Batfish is wanting to resolve, and gave a fantastic demonstration the tool doing his thing. Our discussion and chat helped me understand use situations and opportunities to test Batfish in my own environment.
And rounding away April on NetDevOps Live! saw quite a long time buddy of the show, Kevin Corbin, join me once more to dive into several new ideas and means of looking at system automation and changing assumptions and concepts. I could probably execute a whole period of NetDevOps Live! on the various tools from HashiCorp (if that sounds good i want to know in the responses), however in Episode 4 Kevin broke down where Terraform, Vault, Consul, and Nomad match the “stack” of equipment handling our infrastructure in the property of “hybrid cloud”. And despite several technical difficulties, we’d a fantastic discussion that I understand everyone would want to watch!
We aren’t completed yet! What’s Arriving Next?
Therefore April was pretty incredible, but have a look at what we have waiting for you in May 2020.
On May 5th sign up for me as Kevin Swiber dives into Postman. I understand what you’re considering… “But Hank, I know about Postman.” That could be true, but We ensure you’ll learn something brand new from Kevin. Heck, I actually discovered something from him simply by chatting about what we’re able to cover through the webinar. You won’t desire to miss this one.
The next week of May may be the main one I’ve been many looking towards. Jeremy Stretch joins me on May 12th to talk about NetBox, among the best tools in my own NetDevOps tool chest. It’s becoming a lot more favored by engineers and enterprises. Heck, they’re launching a whole virtual conference focused on NetBox (I am hoping my talk is chosen ).
And the bookend on Season 3 is May 19th where we get yourself a consider the true dragon’s treasure horde of automation, logging. That’s correct… where else is it possible to discover insights into what offers been taking place in the network, and when something is “regular”. George Kobar has been spending so much time pulling together an excellent demo of ELK working on the DevNet Sandbox that people hope you’ll desire to try yourself. Definitely earned’t desire to miss this one.
What could possibly be better?
I think we are able to all concur that Season 3 of NetDevOps Live! provides been absolute perfection and we have to hangup our gaming console cables and get back to our time jobs, correct? … WRONG? We’ve without doubt you can find more excellent subjects we are able to dive into and discover in the future.
