As we are busy diving into the world of programming and automation, I’d like to remind everyone of a way to make simple config changes to a Cisco switch or router using a text file. This might not be a breakthrough, but it helps when making changes to switches or routers when those changes can possibly disconnect you from the device. Imagine working on a re-IP of a switch or even a point to point link. You have your notepad ready to go. There is a new IP and default route and all you have to do is copy/paste.

Contributing author, David A., shares his 5 Tips for New Engineers!
Next year will be my tenth in a network engineering role. I’ve seen team members come and go, leadership change and roles changes as well. Nothing is ever static, especially the technology. For those looking to enter a network engineering role or are simply young in their IT career, I wanted to jot down a couple of tips that I hope can help them be successful in their roles. I originally was going to make this network-centric, but honestly it applies to any type of role you might be in.

Ok, first things first; Cisco, (like many other certification granting entities), have long since developed proven formats for designing certification exams as well as the supporting documentation that accompany them to aid candidates in their quest in getting certified. For every certification exam, there is a certification “blueprint”, a syllabus of sorts.
Enter the world of Automation and Programmability, with AONE Blog contributing author Esteban, as network engineers it’s often scary to learn that things are changing at a fast pace if you don’t know where to start Cisco new certification DevNet Associate is the right fit for this purpose, this is a short but powerful read on what to expect, how to prepare and what resources do you need to be successful.
