If you’re not old enough to know otherwise, you’d think (based on recent hype) that we discovered network automation a few years ago. Not true. One of my readers sent me a link to excellent Managing IP Networks with Free Software presentation from NANOG26 (October 2002).
I found the presentation awesome, nothing new, and extremely sad… all at the same time.
- Awesome – because it is ;)
- Extremely sad – because I’m still telling people exactly the same thing during my network automation online courses, webinars and workshops, and we’re still not getting anywhere.
