Network Engineering Goes DevOoopsie!!!
I sit here and reflect back to 2008 when my supervisor suggested I look into the CCNA and Network+. My world changed from plugging a cable into a switch to setting up BGP peers, to configuring Load Balancers for High Availability. Network Engineering has evolved and from my eyes, has been entirely reimagined, retaining the foundations of networking.
As I've slowly pivoted to the world of Cloud Native technologies and DevOps, a lot of my previous Network Engineer has translated to today's approach to microservices architecture. FOLLOW THE PACKET I SAY!
